I’m really happy with my sock progress. Despite the socks large size, it looks the construction is going as it should. I was close to finishing the heel flap, and decided to attend the knitting circle at Nangellini last night in case I got stuck turning the heel and starting the gusset. I found the heel instructions on Silver’s Sock Class very clear and easy to follow, and got through that part very easily. I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Nicole from No Two Snowflakes about the book of knitting patterns she’s working on. She was also a big help with my dropped stitches! She has some lovely patterns and hand dyed yarn in her etsy store.
I found a YouTube video on starting the gusset, and watched that twice before moving on. Once I saw it done, I didn’t have any problems starting the gusset. I’m hoping to finish this sock in the next couple days, and start on my first real pair.
