Hey everyone,

I am trying to knit the Embossed Leaves Socks from Interweaves Twenty Five Favorite Socks.  All of the posts I have seen about them say they are easy, but I seem to be having so many problems with them Undecided I have made it to the beginning of the heel gusset, and can't figure out how to proceed.  I have finished turning the heel and the directions say to cut yarn and "with RS facing, rejoin yarn to beg of right side of heel flap and pick up sts along selvedge edges of heel flap and rejoin for working in the round."

Now, I can't even figure out what the right side is so I can get it facing me.  It seems like no matter where I attach the yarn to start picking up stitches, I will end up rejoining for knitting in the round so that the sock goes inside out!  I don't know if I'm explaining this properly, but any help would be sorely appreciated!

Assuming you've already turned the heel, the right side would be the one that you would see if someone was wearing the sock with their foot pointing towards you.  In other words, the heel is at the bottom and the (future) toe points up.  The leg points away from you.

It's pretty common for people to knit inside-out in the round -- are you sure you haven't done that?

Thank you for replying!  Actually, I somehow figured it out--I had a sudden epiphany, and everything just made sense.  My boyfriend said, "oh, you figured it out?  How did you fix it?"  But I literally can't explain what I was doing wrong or how I fixed it.  But thank you!!
