My SSK, SKP stitches aren't very neat...
Hey Everyone,

I've been knitting socks for a while and I find that when I'm decreasing on the toe area my ssk or skp stitches aren't as neat as my k2tog stitches, is there a technique to fix this??

When you slip the sts, keep them on the tips so they don't get stretched out. And for the ssk, instead of moving them back to the L needle, insert the L needle in front of them on the R need and knit them tog. That keeps you from having to move them another time which can stretch them. If you have a tight tension that can sometimes cause loose stitches too. Really!
