That's essentially my method - it really alleviates the dreaded SSS!!!
Although the "timely manner" may not always apply to my socks -
I have some sock WIPs that are close to being UFOs.
And I don't understand it as they are usually "quick-ish" items. Embarassed

you look perplexed, Nancy.

And I'm thinking it's WIP vs. UFO.

I use WIP (Work In Progress) for projects that are being worked on or are in line to be worked on very soon.

I use UFO (UnFinished Object) for those projects that have been started and have been forgotten about OR won't be picked up again for a while. To me, they really aren't works in progress right now as no progress is being made on them.

I am on dpns, I figured for the first try it would be easier, plus I do not have size 2 circulars.
Finished the flap, (There's a lot of slip stitching in there but, hey so I slipped alot . . .)

New problems what is the "m" and what am I to purl, how far should I purl;

"Turn the heel:

1st row: slip 1, purl , p2togm p1; turn; ( stitches will remain on the left hand needle when you turn.) " from sockulator inst.

see emboldened 'm' and the corresponding underlined 'purl'.

should that be p2tog,typo, p1: turn?

and is the 'purl' with no other direction telling me to YO to purl?

ETA;
Sorry Jackie, I just looked at pg. 1 n posted my reply, I know UFOs n WIPs. It's this pattern that is confusing me and knitting my brow.

I think it should be "sl 1, purl (a number of stitches), p2tog, p1, turn" There shouldn't be a need for any YOs.

That m is very likely supposed to be a comma.

and no problem with wip and ufo. It was just a timing thing where your post ended up. I know i can ramble and know exactly what i was thinking when i typed, then it ends up being a mess of confusion when i read it later! I thought maybe my post was a bunch of nonsensical rambling.

Oh yea, been there done that. I look at it the next day 'n wonder what, in the name of heaven, was I trying to say. Strangely I can usually follow the rambelings of others better then my own, go figure.

So the 'purl' is 24 stitches n the 'm' is a comma. OK, because I was going to ask how one could knit a typo but I guess now I do not need to Wink Laughing

Seriously I do not want to tink back in this sock yarn as it is so fine and wirey. It unravels far beyond what was intended even when fixing just 1 stitch. I'm thinking the next pair in this yarn may be on #1 needles instead of 2s. It's still a bit too much texture for a sock but at least it is not lacy.

I think Jackie is probably right about the m...it is right next to the , on the keyboard. My fingers would do that...in fact, they have. Embarassed

Mine too. Embarassed

If you do need to tink it for any reason, don't forget that you can put a lifeline in so it doesn't go back any further than you want. They aren't just for lace. Wink

OK, I frogged the whole heel tab and the heel cup. It had a huge hole on the side of the heel n I want a wearable pair of socks not just a working sample. Confused Off to redo the heel tab n cup . . . one more time. Rolling Eyes

I'll definatly include a few lifelines this time through . . .

Here's a hint.. when you get back to knitting in the round, pick up a stitch between the heel side and the instep side, and knit it together with your next stitch... this will help close that little hole...

??GA, Where exactly do you mean, is that after you pick up the stitches from the side of the heel flap? or at the top of the foot between the heel flap and the instep?

Maybe this will help...

It shows how to get rid of the little gap that occurs right at the top of the heel where you start working on the ankle and cuff...

Thanks GA, It does. Pictures really do speak volumes compared to words Very Happy
For some reason the sock, half finished is sitting unfinished . . . Embarassed I've cast on a rectangle shrug with some new yarn that just arrived (New yarn, who could resist?) . The sock is not looking like I was hopeing. The heel is turned and looks OK, the instep is started but I just am not liking this yarn as much as I was hopeing for. It's too textured. Not nearly as soft as I'd hoped when knitted. I hope to finish this sock, now that I can turn the heel it's all down hill. I may just frog it n use the yarn for another project before I close the toe. . .
Looking for some nice soft sock yarn to do a proper pair now.
