Just Getting Started

I was in the midst of finishing some long term projects when our packages arrived so I'm late beginning my sock. I've been reading all the questions about the pattern here and on Ravelry and had hoped the early knitters would figure out the problems but looks like there are still questions. I'm not to the heel flap yet but I'm planning on using 30 stitches rather than the 29 in the directions. Most of the other socks I've made have as many rows as stitches in the heel flap so I plan to knit 30 rows. I'm used to picking up approximately half the number of rows for the gusset stitches so I'm planning on 15 -17 gusset stitches on each side of the heel flap.
I'm enjoying the yarn very much and the pattern is easy to remember. Hope to see some other knitters posting here so we can help one another make beautiful socks.
