    Smart! I’m going to try that on my socks because you’re right, ssk bugs me!

    Wow! That is such an easy way to clean up that decrease. I’ve tried other tips that have been suggested on knitting sites, but they haven’t helped all that much. Thanks for that.
    I’m just starting the socks and hope I will enjoy doing two at the same time. I’ve knitted many pairs of socks, but always one at a time, and don’t get “second sock syndrome” so haven’t had a real push to change.

    Glad I could help. Happy knitting!
