To repair socks, push the mushroom behind the hole to slightly tension the fabric, then sew threads across the hole parallel to each other piercing the fabric each side of the hole. Come back along sewing at right-angles to the first threads and weaving over-under to fill in the hole. Tensioning the fabric stops the darning from pulling the fabric together.
