socks...pattern facing in or out?
I don't know why I'm drawing a blank, but I can't seem to remember. I'm doing a sample for my friends store from the book "Knitting Socks, East Meets West." So far, the pattern has been facing inside, but when I get to the heel, I should flip it right side out? God, it's been about 13 years since I've done socks & these socks are definitely a little harder than I remember them being...

Yes, that's what you would do. You're probably knitting with the needles away from you instead of toward you, which means that you're knitting the RS on the inside and the WS on the outside. That's okay, many people do it like that.

thanks for the info on weather the needle tips are closest to you or the cord. The cord is always closest to my body and THATS WHY its inside out. wow, never would have thought it mattered. Thanks.

That's ok, when I started making my first socks about a year ago, I would get to the heel flap and when I did my short rows I would always end up with one extra stitch. I just could not figure out what I was doing wrong. I would tear it all out and redo do it paying close attention to the pattern, etc, but nope, kept having that extra pesky stitch. I probably made7-8 pairs of socks just knitting that last stitch together with the previous one since I could not figure out why I was not getting it right. Well, duh, light bulb moment a few months ago when I started socks for my grandson. I am left handed and knit left handed and as such when I get to the short rows, I have to start on a PURL row for them to come out right! I now have perfect heels on my socks! I seem to be a bit slower on the uptake than most people I guess!
