Ok, i know that hundreds of you,…nay, thousands, perhaps…..have been waiting with breaths held to see the heel flap i have worked so hard on. And i dare not disappoint:
So now i see what the gusset is but i can’t figure out how to make it happen!! I think the pattern lady is trying to sound smart. Even Lucy could not figure out how to start the gusset after reading the directions with me over and over. Maybe i should have started my first sock with an intermediate pattern….this could be my fault. But seriously, the woman didn’t even feel the need to explain what a gusset was, much less make any sense in her directions on how to make it! So once again i am at a standstill. I did order a Knitting Socks book off Barnes and Noble.com but it hasn’t arrived yet. I’m hoping that will clear things up. I could just quit this sock and start another, easier sock…..but now i am angry. I WILL make this sock. Now it’s personal.
I have a feeling the lady at the little local yarn shop will be getting another “help” visit from me this weekend….this time i may have to buy something so she doesn’t think i’m just using her.
Oh yeah, and have i mentioned that this sock is looking a little tight? Lucy’s not so sure it will fit a human foot. This sock is going to kill me.
