I get completely confussed when knitting socks. I have made only a few pairs so I'm pretty green at this.
When you make the heel, a pattern says to slip the first stitch. Do you ALWAYS slip it as if to purl on both purl and knit side or is it "as if to knit" on knit sides and "as if to purl" on purl sides?
Then while making the guesset, there is a stitch that says :
K 1, sl 1 k1 psso, . This is always on the knit side (the purl side is just purl 2 tog). Do I slip that stitch as if to purl or knit?
I watch youtube videos of people making socks and some slip as if to purl every time and some slip as if to knit every time and some do a combo.
Does everyone do it differently? Anyone want to tell me how they do it??
