Well I am past the heel part of the sock and working the gussett, My questions for today are this:
The K2get 2 and ssK… I understand are decrease stitches I understand this… but are they done this way for the angle of the project?
Also what is the purpose of a sl stitch… at the beginning of a row. or in a pattern? Sometimes this stitch is so very large.
My next question is this:
WHen I had to do the side stitches for the sock, along the heel flap it said to pick up 19 and knit them. I for the life of me could not get my brain and hands to manage this process. I watched a few videos and they just picked up stitches, but want to understand just how to pick them up and then knit them… I am stumped.
I only started knitting again to make a pair os socks for my daughter and have put this aside so many times in the past months that I have made scaves, hats, wrist warms etc to avoid the sock… even started a tank top. Good thing is I managed to force my self to learn continential knitting, cause it seems more manageable for the ribbing stitch. Now it is so easy to do… both the stitch and the ribbing I always seemed to mess up.
So in all the rambling I will Master the sock…
