Sock update #6 (Taking the plunge)

Okay. I’ve done the heel flap and turned the heel, and picked up my stitches.

I counted my rows on the heel flap as I did them this time, so there’d be no mixup. I got to fifteen (counting slipped stitch rows only), and compared it to the finished sock. They seemed to be the same length. so I tried counting the rows on the finished sock, and came up with fifteen, again and again. So I left the new one at fifteen and picked up my stitches.

I came up with sixteen on the one side and seventeen on the other. What the heck am I doing wrong? The only thing I can think of is if I’m picking up that little stitch at the start of the heel flap. I dunno.

The finished sock seems fine, so I’m ignoring the seventeenth stitch again, and I’ll just finish this one the same.

  1. Oh, good. I’m glad I’m not alone!

  2. Eh, my heel pickup stitches aren’t always even either. As long as it’s only a couple off, I don’t worry about it. I just try on as I go along to make sure it still fits.
