I am having the same problem on my second sock as I did on the first. The k2tog instep decreases on Needle #1 look great, but the ssk decreases on Needle #4 look terrible. They look big and sloppy and, when the sock is worn, the ssk stitches separate too much from the neighboring stitches so it looks like the sock has a run in it. I have no idea what I might be doing wrong. It seems like I'm keeping my tension uniform. Any ideas?
Different people have different ways of knitting so although many people find ssk less sloppy than sl1k1psso, you may not. Check out http://techknitting.blogspot.com/ the 28/9 post describes a better way to do nice tight left-leaning decreases to match, and other posts around that date cover others.
