I have made several pair (and a few lonely single socks!) using the 2 circs, top down method (learned from Nenah’s first video). This time I am trying to do a ribbing down the sock, carrying the ribbing on the top (instep?) using the k2p2 ribbing. I am at the point of decreasing the gusset stitches, they are in Stockinette stitch and then changing to the k2p2 for the top instep. The first ribbing on the first needle goes fine, but when I pick up the 2nd needle to finish out the k2p2 pattern, I cannot get it. I need to p2, but am always ending up w/an extra stitch on the first purl and the join/ladder looks bad. I am using fixation yarn.
Anyone have advice on taking up the 2nd needle and getting a nice purl stitch? It’s probably something really dumb but I have tried so many different ways to do it and just can’t get it done w/out ending up w/an extra stitch on the first purl. Sorry this is so long, I’m trying to explain it the best I can.
