Hello. I am knitting a sock and I got the heel done. I picked up my stitches around the gusset and I knitted all the way around for one row. I accidentally dropped the LAST 2 stitches on the first needle of the first row of decrease. I can't for the life of me figure on how to pick them up without a giant hole. I really don't want to start this again. I took pictures of what I have... here it is:
That's where the problem is in the work.
Try using a crochet hook - start with one of the knitted loops at the bottom, then work up the two ladder rungs. Repeat for the second stitch.
You can find a good illustration of the process at http://www.knitting.co.nz/site/page_affix/toaffix_learntoknit5/ (scroll to the bottom of the page).
Tried that a million times, leaves huge huge holes.
The problem is I dropped the picked up stitches around the gusset.
Sorry, I don't have any suggestions, but I was wondering what yarn and colorway you're using?
The cheap stuff. Red Heart sport... color: crayon.
This is my first sock.... I was just trying it out.
