I darned a couple socks around the end of the year, you don't really need a kit or anything so long as you have some appropriate needles and something to give the sock some shape. I used a 500ml mason jar with rounded corners for mine.

I think the biggest trick is to start far enough away from the hole and give yourself enough room for you to weave in sufficient thread to hold your repair in place via friction.

I can't really comment on what yarn or thread to use, that's entirely up to the existing sock you're trying to repair.

Are there any good fabric stores that don't charge an arm and a leg to ship to Canada? Ontario just hit another lockdown and I gotta make hats!!!

If you want heavy stuff, JT's outdoor fabrics is out of Ontario.

Paccana is out of Calgary, shipping rates are reasonable.

I recently purchased a good quantity of fabric and supplies from both, both were great to deal with and prompt with service. I recommend both.
