I finished these Jaywalker socks just a little over a year ago. I had not worn them very often. But it's not the fault of the yarn or the knitting. I have sandpaper feet. I'll have to either fix the feet or not wear handknit socks! Don't try to diagnose my feet from these pictures; my daughter is modeling.
i have feet like that too. I've resorted to using reinforcing thread in my heels.... it helps~
The reinforcing thread does do wonders, but I have taken to using contrast yarn for the heels 'n' toes and throwing in a couple of stripes of it in the top ribbing (to make it look like it's supposed to be there) so when I need to rip them out to replace them I (a) have extra yarn to do it with and (b) it's easy to tell where the heels 'n' toes begin and end.
Life as a real woman is still better than life as a sit com star though, don't you think?
