Do you get advice/help mostly from books, online sites, local yarn store or friends?

holes in my socks!!

Hey men!  Well I've become addicted to knitting babysocks.  They're so damn cute I can't stop! (check out the first pair at kilgoretrout.wordpress.com/test) My problem comes in when I turn the heel.  Like many sock knitters, I end up with a series of holes going up the gusset as I "turn" the heel.  I've tried knitting this tighter in that area, and asked many knitters, but they answer I get is the same: "I have that problem too, not sure what to do, just sew up the holes at the end".   Yes yes, sew up the holes, that's what I'm doing.  It only takes a few minutes and the finished product looks presentable, but theres GOT to be a way to knit a heel without these holes!  any ideas?
