Okay, after successfully completing a dishcloth and a cabled scarf, I decided to move onto a pair of socks. I had a real hard time with the first one, had to cast on several times and rip out not even a full round later. When I finally got the hang of it, I was so excited that I forgot to place a marker when I joined in the round. I have no idea where I started! I used a long tail cast on, so that string is still dangling, but I don't know where the join is in relation to it. Can someone help?

the join will be on the same side as the tail.

Yeah, just trail the stich where the tail starts down to your needles and you’re good. But also, if you are half a round off when you start the heel it isn’t really a big deal (assuming there is no pattern involve Cheesy ).

I collect the pieces of insight I find on the street and sew them into a quilt of understanding.
