i'm making socks from silver's sock class (which i decided to use after everyone talking it up on here) and i think i messed up. i'm at the very end, where you're doing the decreases to form the toe, right before you actually stitch it up. and it said to "continue rounds 1 and 2 until you have 24 stitchs" (the round where you where do the decreases, and then just a knit round). it said you should have 6 stitchs on two of the needles, and 12 on the other. i kept going, counting pretty much by the two needles with the six, only to realize that when i was done, i had 6 on both needles and NINE on the needle that i was supposed to have 12 on.
i'm ganna go back and frog it a bit, to see what i've done wrong, but i was wondering, are they all supposed to reach those stitch counts at the same time, or will the middle needle reach 12 before the other two reach 6 and i'll have to just keep knitting straight across the middle needle to keep from decreasing anymore?
