JULIE! I just had to say thank you again because you were absolutely right.
I just ripped out all the heel for the THIRD time and redid it that way
k1, slip 1, and it was like the other sock. Then I looked in my sock book and saw I had knit a different sock like that, so I guess I'm not crazy after all,
I had most likely turned to the wrong page, late at night, after some wine!
I'm so happy, you are definitely a master sock knitter.
