DECREASING GUSSET QUESTION
I'm a new knitter. I'm knitting a sock with 2 circular needles, and I'm at the point where I'm decreasing the gusset. In the areas closest to the heel on one needle I have 26 stitches and on the other I have 27. I have to decrease both area stitches to 16. Since I have an extra stitch on one of the needles, do I do another decrease go around to take care the extra stitch and when i get the row without the extra stitch do I just knit it?

Did you pick up the same # of stitches on each side of the heel flap?? I think that what I would do if there was an unbalanced number of stitches on each side....I'd decrease as usual, but rather than doing an extra gusset decrease on one side, I'd do the last decrease at the center of the bottom of the sock. But that's just what I'd do, I don't know if one way is better than the other or not.
