Somehow, Someway, SOME ONE has flipped on the light switch for me.. Jaywalkers now completely make sense... I just don't get this..
I FORCED myself (which was NOT an easy thing to do) last night with Miss Sarah and the knitting get together to work on them - I FINISHED the body of the sock and had ONE row of the heel flap completed before I left for home..
Got home and to my COMPLETE surprise, I did NOT want to put them down... Why is that you ask - I have NO clue what so ever!
So, I had to spend a couple of hours up last night in the wee hours of the morning calming down the old beagle dog (he is horribly frightened by storms) - so I figured what the hay - pulled them out and went to town..
I completed the heel flap and turned the heel correctly (ON THE FIRST TRY - which being only the 2nd time I did this and the issues I had on the first one - this is a coup!)
Then, I read the directions for the next step which is knit across and pick up 16 stitches down the side.. Ok, I get that - makes total sense... EXCEPT... That I have 19 slipped stitches from the turn - if I ONLY pick up the 16 I'm going to have a "holey" (and not a church going holy) sock.. If i pick up ALL 19 - then I'm assuming that I have to do additional decreases at some point and not sure with this whole pattern thingie how exactly that would work...
So, I sent an email to Miss Sarah - and I told her to answer it QUICKLY as I don't want to stop, I have great momentum and and and..
But alas, I am waiting - I think I'll go work on Bree's footie socks I've started! heeeeeee
It's supposed to be storming here again shortly - my weather radar (the old beagle) is telling me so.. So, it will be an awesome moring to sip my coffee and knit!
