 I'm working on my first pair of socks and I made it to the heal turn and now I am having some issues.  There are 28 sts on my needle, 15 before the marker,  and it says:
 
Sl 1, knit to marker. Sl M, K2, SSK, K1, turn work.
Sl 1, P 5 st, P2tog, P1, turn work.
Next row: Sl 1, K to 1 st before gap. SSK using one st from each side of gap. K1, turn work.
Next row: Sl 1, P to 1 st before gap. P2tog using one st from each side of gap. P1, turn work.

I made it through the first line ok...but it leaves 7 stitches on the needle when you turn the work. Then in the second row you are only working with a few stitches.  I have no idea where this gap is either. Does this make sense to those who have knit socks before?  I really appreciate any help that you can throw at me Smiley

yup thats exactly what you want.  I just made my first sock, and got really confused when it came to turning the heal.  You just need to do exactly what the pattern says, even when it seems awkward, and you will be fine.

No problem!

The gap is where I had all of my troubles when I made my jaywalkers.  The gap is actually the little jog that happens because there are stitches from two different rows on your needles.  there is a video on knittinghelp.com that explains turning the heal of a sock perfectly.

good luck!
