Back on track

I'm sure you've been breathless with anticipation since Thursday's post, in which Piggy whined about the picking up of gusset stitches. Allow me to apologize for leaving you hanging for so long, and to reassure you that things are fine.

We have the makings of a gusset, thanks to an intervention of Wranglers led by beentsy at yesterday's meet-up.

I advise you to breathe slowly, lest the sudden rush of oxygen overwhelm you.


  1. I have issues with picking up stitches too. I don't know why. Looks like you're on your way to a beautiful sock though!

  2. Happy to see the sock revisited.

  3. solution: toe-up socks! no picking up sts for gusset! i've done them with no gusset, short row heel and NO flap or reinforced heels, and WITH gusset (which is simply an expansion triangle on the side that is decreased into a heel "flap") see my blog for example!
