I have tried knitting socks before and I only got to the heel before I got stuck and said “nope, not going any further.” I have interchangeable circulars and 1 of the cords is very short so maybe I could knit socks without having to do magic loop, at least for adult size socks but for baby socks, I think I will still have to do magic loop or at least have part of the cord sticking out until later on in the round.
I don’t bother correcting the jog anymore because it is just so frustrating not having it look as though I only knitted in 1 color rather than 2(picking up from the row below causes me to have this stitch that looks like it has 2 colors even though I only used 1 color of yarn for the stitch itself and is the way I learned how to do jogless stripes). I don’t bother with cast on or bind off related jog either. I just knit it.
But the gusset is where I have trouble when knitting socks. I can knit the cuff just fine and I can turn the heel just fine but I get stuck when I try to knit the gusset. I don’t use DPNs because I have had bad experiences with them before(namely twisting on a non cast on row, they may say that it won’t twist but that isn’t my experience with it), instead I use circular needles which have an absolutely 0 chance of twisting an a non-cast on row and I just have to worry about whether or not the cast on is twisted.
Anyway, how can I avoid getting stuck at the gusset because the gusset is the most confusing part of the sock for me.
