Everything went along smoothly for me until I got to the heel on the Widdershins pattern and I really, really, really didn't like knitting it. I didn't like how it fit on my heel either!
Since I am a self-taught knitter, I am NOT QUITTING! I'm going to try another pattern, probably the one in Charlene Schurch's Sensational Socks.
BTW, I am very proud of those who have persevered. We can do this!
