I've been toiling away on socks from the same old printout several times now.  In the past I was working with things like dealing with tiny needles, correcting gauge, picking up stitches figuring out kitchener stitch, etc.  I knit about 4 socks from this pattern, but last time had an odd problem where after the heel was done and I was knitting up the foot, merrily decreasing away, all of a sudden my sock looked like it was being knit inside out - there was garter stitch on the outside and stockinette within.  I tore back to try to see what happened but couldn't figure it out, so I just purled the rest and chalked it up to "experience."

Unfortunately, last night the same thing happened again! It had been only a day since I picked up the sock and when I had knit it last time it was fine.  I looked at it happened in about the same place the other one did - about 20 rows after the heel, with the rounds alternating between decrease and knit across.  I know I didn't turn the sock inside out, and the pattern doesn't change at all during this time.

Does anyone have any ideas or experience with this?  I feel as though I have defied the laws of knitting and am totally baffled.

are you knitting with the active needles away from you are close to you? i do this all the time and inadvertantly start knitting with the active needles away from me, and this will cause the problem

Hmmm . .  . that must be what happened.  I will double check that, Thanks!
