Awesome! I have one down and am working on the gussett of the 2nd. Will post when finished. I love seeing everyone's finished products!

I had to do a little frogging...thought I could watch TV and knit at the same time. Got me!

Huh?

Ok, here's mine...

Size zero needles, Regia yarn: 75%superwash wool and 25% polyamide. The photo doesn't do the color "partie" justice. Colors range from brown to fuschia to reds.  (Sorry. Should have lotioned and spray tanned before snapping a picture. hee hee)

I have definitely fallen behind on my socks.  I was just about to start the heel when the instructions didn't make sense to me. ( I am following the instruction for a finished size of 8.) 

 

So the instructions are:  set -up row 1: (rs) work 17 sts in established rib patt as foll: [k3, p1] 4 times, k2 1 time, turn work.

I am using the magic loop method and I have my sock divided with 34 sts on each side.  So when I go to do this first step how do I work 17 sts when the pattern calls for k3,p1 (which would be 16), then a k2?  Either way I figure it, I can't get the numbers to work.

Then when I go to the next step, how can i "sl 1, then p33"  when i haven't got that many sts due to the row before.

 

Can anyone clear this up for me?  Thanks!

You need to work the 16 sts in pattern then k1 (watch those parentheses)  then you turn your work and continue until you have sl1 p33 for a total of 34 sts for the heel flap

That  "17 sts then turn" centers the heel flap at the back of the sock,

Hope this helps

There are 2 things:

1. If you're working the 68-st size, then you work [k3, p1] 4 times, then k1--not 2. So work those 17 stitches and turn.

2. You will need to rearrange the stitches on the needles--and you can "borrow" stitches from the last round. So after you work back over the 17 stitches of the set-up row, work 17 stitches from the previous round.

Hope that helps!
