Hi and welcome to Knitting Help and knitting socks. Socks can be great fun. You're working only on the heel stitches at this point. You'll get back to all the other stitches later on.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
