Let me tell you some backstory... I once made a pair of socks as a gift for my MIL, and with ALOT of help with a friend I completed them and all was well. That was 5 years ago. Every pair of socks I've tried since then has turned into yarny messes of ookiness and I gave up forever.
Then I decided to try again.
So, here I am, attempting to knit the International Socks of Doom:
And I have reached the heel portion where you begin to knit the heel flap. The pattern says to "S11, K to end" which I understand to be Slip 11 stitches then knit the rest until the end- cool, I got that. My question is, if I did that, wouldn't that make a big ole line of yarn on the WS behind the slipped stitches? Is that right? Is that how its supposed to be? Or is there some secret unspoken whatsit that I'm supposed to do to carry the yarn along the back for the sock's heel flap that I don't know?
Please help (Craftster really needs a begging icon I think- so we can beg for help AND beg for tutorials)
