Sock Fiasco!

I thought that things were going too well with socks, esp.; since I'm a beginner. I was a little leery of the heel flap, but I got through that part OK. was time to do the heel turn. What a mess! I can't even explain where things went wrong, but let's just say that it no where near resembles a sock or anything like it.

I probably misunderstood the directions. It said to work back & forth on X number of stitches & let the "other stitches rest". I guess I missed the part where I was supposed to wake them up & put them back into action. Tomorrow is another day. I'll try & figure out how much I have to rip out & how much I can salvage.

I'm still trying to figure out the part where "knitting socks can become addicting."

Once you figure it out, you'll go DOH! Like a lot of things, it's easy once you know what you're doing! :))

If you Google "Socks 101" it has great pics on knitting socks. You'll find it very helpful. I'm not sure why your blog is not flagging me...ugh! I've missed a lot so I will now get caught up.
