Okay, I don't know what the hell I'm doing wrong here. Every time I make a sock, I get these long stitches when I pick up for the sides. But the thing is, I only get it on one side. The other side looks normal. I don't know if it's the yarn or what. When I slip the first stitch on the heel flap, I make sure that they are tight. I guess it doesn't matter, because that part will be in my shoe. Plus, other people wont know either, because most people don't know crap about what a hand knitted sock is supposed to look like.
