Knitting socks long distance

My college daughter started knitting a sock while on vacation. She is a beginner knitter and I have never knitted socks. Any suggestions for how to help her knit the heel of the sock long distance. she is using 5 needles and I am going to have to help her with questions without the pattenr.

That’s really adventurous to start on socks! :thumbsup: Here’s a link to a site that has photos each step of the way. Many of us learned to knit socks with this pattern.

Silver’s Sock Class has a wonderful picture tutorial and Dorret Conway on You Tube has wonderful step by step videos. I played her videos over and over when doing my first stocking.

Socks are fun and useful to everyone. They’re my favorite knitting projects anymore.

Edit: Because I cain’t spell!
