I think that this question is so dumb, and the answer is probably staring me in the face...but I'm not getting it! :??
I'm starting my first pair of socks and right at the beginning it says to divide my cast on stitches to 4 needles and place a stitch marker between the 4th and 1st needle to mark the beginning of my round. Well, on a circular needle (for all the hats I've done) it is easy, but when I put it on the end of a dpn, it obviously just rolls right off. So I figured I would just stager my stitches by 1 stitch all the way around thus holding the marker on 1 stitch into the round...but that doesn 't work for the socks because of the heel shaping and where that lands on the 4 needles...tHey have to be divided evenly from the first stitch!
gosh I feel like I am complicating the simplest thing!!!!!!!!
Also, this sock pattern says to work the ankle however I want for the desired length (how high I want the socks)... I was thinking that K2 P2 rib would be a great way to do my first pair.. then maybe I'll get brave and do some cables or lace for my second? hehe.
