Turn heel question
Ok, I have 30 stitches on my needle (doing sock on 2 circs of course). How many do I knit on my first row before I turn, and how many do I purl on my 2nd row before I turn?

You start the turn on a purl row, and purl to two past center, so in your case, purl 17, p2tog, p1, turn. Then sl1, k5, k2tog, k1, turn. And so on. That's the method I use, anyway (Silver's). :D

Oooh ok...the pattern I've used before starts the turn on the first row (knit). I just wasn't sure how many to do before I turn...thanks Julie and Brenda! :XX:
