remclave - what do you mean by "passing the stitches back and forth"? I looked at Silver's tutorial, and she uses a short-row heel (and only picks up one corner stitch to close the heel)...did you change the pattern and do a different type of heel?
redwitch - thanks for the advice. I actually know how to pick up stiches, I just don't know how to do it when I've got two socks on one circular needle...I guess I wasn't too clear on my problem.
Here's what I'm thinking of doing, and when I finish my socks I'll post about how well (or not-well) it worked:
Once I'm done knitting the heel flap of both socks (with right side facing), I will - 1) Knit across heel of sock 1, 2) Pick up first half of gusset stitches of sock 1, 3) Knit across heel of sock 2, 4) Pick up first half of gusset stitches of sock 2,5) Knit across instep of sock 2, 6) Pick up second half of gusset stitches of sock 2, 7) knit across instep of sock 1, 8) Pick up second half of gusset stitches of sock 1......and then I'll be back where I started and can begin gusset decreases.
Does this sound logical? I guess I'll find out soon!!
