Call me another one who was successful with Silvers tutorial!
I printed the WHOLE thing out...23 pages...and clipboarded it...carried it around inmy knitting bag for WEEKS....scared to try...finally I just DID it.
I messed up SO bad when it came to making the heel flap...I was knitting inside out....so I came here and figured it out!
Between Silvers tutorial, and this forum, I completed my FIRST SOCK this weekend!
AND...CO for the 2nd on in the blue, and the first one for DH in the red.
You can DO it! Just trust yourself!
