Avoiding a gusset hole
Does anyone have a trick to help me not get a hole when I begin knitting out from my gusset stitches? I have made only a few socks so I'm still pretty new at it.

Are you picking up and knitting an extra stitch near the corner of the gusset (on both sides)? The next round you would decrease to return to the original number of sttitches. Or try knitting the back of the stitch; it would twist it and tighten up the area.
