  1. did the 33 rows for the heel, got the 18sts on needle….you tell me to pick up 14sts on the same needle with the 18sts….why am I not picking up all 32sts??? very confused, all videos show that you pick up all the sts you knit for the heel, have tried this step a lot of times now and cannot figure out your pattern….what am I doing wrong?

    1. Hi Cheryl,

      Let me see if I can help First, I’ll suggest some great tutorials.
      1. http://verypink.com/2011/01/13/video-lesson-learn-to-knit-socks/ ($8.00, but well worth it)
      2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgGf3s_a9-E (free and a good tutorial)

      You can pick up 14 or more stitches. Just like in tutorial #2 you pick up the slipped stitches. The instructor is also right about the extra stitch. You definitely want to avoid having a hole.

      I hope this helps. You can contact me again if you need further help. Good luck.

  3. Hello,
    I refer to your post of 2013 regarding the pet barrier. I find the idea very brilliant.
    You mentioned that you used curtain hooks to keep the screen in place but I am not able to understand how you did that. Grateful if you could provide more light on how you affixed the barrier to the wall. I am not too keen on drilling holes in the wall. May be you can help me with some suggestions. Thanks.
