I finished knitting the 8" cuff earlier in the week.
Making the heel was new territory for me. I messed up a little. I was suppose to knit the heel on needles 1 and 4, but I ended up knitting it on needles 2 and 3.
The instep was intimidating. I watched 2 different you tube videos on how to pick up and knit the stitches for the instep. Did I do it right? I think so. I messed up somewhere else along the lines. I thought that the outside was the inside when finished, but it is not (after examining the pattern picture). I like the "inside" better, so I'm still going to turn it inside out when finished. Then with the heel, what was suppose to be the knit side and the purl side are now the opposite. That works in my favor though since I want to turn it inside out. For the foot, I am suppose to be knitting 2 of the needles. But to keep with turning it inside out, I am purling on those needles instead. Making the 2nd sock should be interesting. This is my first sock, so there is bound to be mistakes. If there weren't, it wouldn't be a learning experience.
