I am knitting Spiraling Square Socks by Jenny Blackburn (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spiralling-square-socks) and am a bit stumped on the heel set up. The directions say:
K7, turn your work so that the wrong side is facing, P34
(Note: Knitting 7 before turning and purling 34 lines it up for the top of foot pattern later.)
Spiralling Square Socks
"The heel is worked back and forth on these 34 stitches. Place the rest of the stitches on hold for now. These will form the top of the foot later."
I knitted the 7 stitches and then turned my work. As I started to purl on the ws, I noticed that it left a hole in my work - any idea what I am doing wrong? Don't you usually slip the first stitch once you turn your work to avoid making a hole and also setting up your working yarn on the right hand needle?
Thanks for any help on this!
