I am starting on some socks for my dad for Christmas (will probably be done late but that’s nothing new for me). What I’ve noticed is I knit inside out when knitting in the round. Its normally not an issue, I just turn everything at the end but I am concerned with the heel of the sock. I have tried to knit socks once before and it didn’t work out at all – the heel was inside out but the rest of the sock was correct. I have tried knitting with the needles closest to me but for some reason, my mind can’t figure that out and it turns into a jumbled mess.
Here’s my question: do I just follow the pattern regardless and it should turn out ok or do I have to substitute somehow (knit the purls and purl the knits?) so that the heel works out?
Reading this, it doesn’t even make sense to me – am I the only person who has experienced this?
