I'm having a bit of trouble with the last few pattern rows.  I've increased my total stitch count to 68 - just FYI.  I've completed a RS row and have 4 unworked stitches on the left hand needle.  What do I do next?  I really need some step by step instructions. Huh 

I tried to do what I thought the pattern was saying, but after complete the second triangle, I'm not back to stitch number 1.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

From the pattern:
Continue in this manner, working 4 more sts before turning on every row, until there are only 4 sts left unworked at end of row (RS). K3, turn work, work turn st, purl to turned st, purl tog both loops of turned st, p3, turn, work turn st. Now work 2 rounds over all sts, knitting together both loops of the last turned sts. Note that the beginning of the round has shifted from needle 1 to needle 3.

Remember on the last 2 rows you knit or purl only 3 stitches past the turned stitch. Then those 2 plain rounds you knit those last 2 turn stitches.

Do you think you forgot to knit 4 past the turn stitch on one row? I was off by one stitch on one of my triangles. I figured it was just a counting error somewhere.

pmack17, Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!  I realized that I didn't have the end of the row marked, so I was ending up with just a total of 4 unworked sts not 8.

Another quick question....

How do I avoid a hole inbetween the two unworked sts?

Amazingly, the next plain round of knitting closes the gap. Also, I'm hoping that a good blocking will smooth the sock. I blasted mine with my steam iron and it looks a lot better.

That's good to hear - I was wondering the same thing.

Progress, at last! These are Lion Brand Magic Stripes in Regatta Blue Stripe. They are a bit skewed which I presume is because my knit gauge is different than my purl gauge. I'm hoping a soak, some time on a sock blocker and maybe some steam will even them out. I'm going to attempt the heel today.
 
The pattern is fun and well written, however if you like knitting socks because there are few purl stitches, this pattern is not for you. Half of the rows are purl rows!

Looks good! It'll look skewed if you haven't done an even number of short-row sections (it looks like you've done 3?). And when you've got an even number of short-row sections, it'll probably STILL look skewed, just less skewed. But once you put it on, it'll look fine. At least that's what happening with mine.

Those are looking good, pmack! I haven't had a chance to work on mine lately. I need to get back to them.

I could've sworn I'd posted pics of my sock a few days ago, but I guess not. Hope these come out ok.

  The gusset runs from the safety pin to the bottom left - the green stripe is the 2nd or 3rd row of the gusset.

The sock's done almost 2" above the heel. (2 short row sections) I'm thinking 6 sections on the leg might be long enough
