2 things just quickly, both not yarn related:
do you know the Silver Sock Class
? There are 3 documents, I believe, and they walk you through learning to knit socks (in one way of doing it, or 2 I belive ... I have read one but not worked any).
The second thing:
O now have 2 toasty feet. The socks are done. I have about 2 yards of my yarn left (good estimate or shere luck... I leave that to you)
The issue on the heel look I have figured out. The pattern was totally clear to me. But when figuring out how to fix it on my own and looked back at the pattern, the pattern said just that. Well, pattern work, I guess. Now I have it.
Great, I will make more of these.
Here are the pics (edited on Saturday):
more pics and link to the pattern in my ravelry profile (hyperactive there too)
