:XX: Hello everyone, My name is Melissa.I have been knitting for only 5 yrs now and was wondering if anyone could please help me with this teensy problem? :thinking: I just started knitting my very first sock this past Thursday. Thought it was going great, that is until I saw a How-to tutorial on www.diynet.com
Now I just know I am not doing this sock right.
I made a 2 1/2 inch cuff like my LYS sock pattern said to, and then it said to do Stockinette st for about 9 inches. Well, I do not want to make huge socks.
I am just wondering, am I supposed to make the cuff, and then start immediately on the heel flap next, with no plain stockinette stitching anywhere from the cuff to the heel?
Or can I do the cuff and then do Stockinette stitch for about 8 or 9 inches and then do the heel flap?
I would appreciate anyone's help on this as I am now going to have to frog
what I have(2 1/2" cuff and about 4" in stockinette st), even though I do not want to rripppittt.
If anyone can help me with this, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all sincerely, Melissa M.
