speaking of toe-up socks....

i'm doing the universal toe-up from knitty, which has you do the short-row toe and then repeat the short-row toe for the heel. i did the heel last night and everything went fine until I got to that last wrapped purl from the prior row when you go back to working in the round. I remembered I wasn't sure how to address it in the toe since the wraps were on the right and really far down, but it seemed to work out (at least I guess), but in the heel, when I tried to pull up the wraps and knit them, I wound up with a ginormous hole right there that was not present on the opposite side.... i know i could pick up a stitch and decrease in the following round, but i think the hole is actually from the way i'm doing the wraps and might not be fixed by that method... any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi Sean,

Same experience as Lars. Twisting the stitch can make it a bit tighter. I ripped out two or three times before I finally got it tight enough. It still left a hole, but not ginormous.
