these socks and have done the toe section 5 times now.
Here is the issue.. I do a provisional CO and knit my 32 stitches. I knit the decreases to the tip of the toe and the increases back up. I still have my total of 32 stitches on. I do all the short rows and everything works out perfectly. when I get to undoing the provisional CO I pick up all the stitches (yes.. all of them.. I've double/tripple/quadruple checked every single time) I only have 29. so instead of having 64 total stitches for my socks.... I have only 61.
What the heck is happening? I swear I am following the pattern. I don't see how I could be getting 29 when the rest of the pattern to that point works out perfectly!! ARRGGG...
at this point.... attempt 5.. I'm ready to just Make 3 stitches in the next row so I can knit my socks!!!!!!
