Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either.

A knitter’s plea

I know there are a lot of knitters around here on Tumblr.  I am a decent, but still somewhat new knitter.  I’m pretty good at all the basic skills and maneuvers - EXCEPT, I cannot figure out how to pick up the stitches from the side of the heel flap on a sock!!!  I started and ripped apart my first pair of socks like a dozen times and have been too angry to try again.  Anyone have any advice or links to a great set of instructions that can help??  If you do, would you kindly drop me a note?  Thanks!
