O.k. so I’m doing my first sock by Silver’s tutorial on DPN’s as she suggested.
My first clue that there was something wrong was when I got to Step 5. The problem was that when I began work on Needle 1 after slipping my stitches to redistribute them to the 3 needles, she sais row 1 was the right side. I looked at my work and it didn’t look like I was knitting on the right side. I couldn’t see where I could have gone wrong though, so I just kept on going.
Well, I have this perfect little heel now - FACING THE WRONG WAY!!! AAAAAAACCCCCKKK!
The good news was, the heel was really easy - (What’s all the fuss about?) Maybe I didn’t get to the hardest part yet?
Anyway, so can anyone tell me what I did wrong? Did I slip the stitches wrong or somthing? I mean, I just don’t get it. I couldn’t see any other way to work on the other side of it at that point, given the location of the working yarn, there was only one way to go.
Would it help at all to post a picture? I don’t know if you can guess what I did wrong just by my explanation (like is there something obvious here that I don’t know because it was only my first pair?). Was I supposed to turn the work before starting row 1 somehow?
Man, this is gonna drive me nuts now. Frogging or starting over from scratch won’t do me any good if I can’t figure out where I screwed up. I’m not frustrated, I just want to figure it out so I can do it right because I’m really thinking I can do this!
Thanks for reading my rambling.
