I’ve made it all the way down the leg on my second sock and I’m ready to start the heel flap.  This stage of sock knitting always feels like I’m at the halfway point of the sock.  I’ve never actually figured out where the halfway point is by stitch count or anything technical like that, but it feels like halfway.  Once I get the gusset decreases worked and I’m back to my original stitch count, I feel like I’m on the home stretch!  Does anyone else divide up their socks in progress like this or is it just my crazy mind?  (Sorry about the photo.  It’s really dark and rainy here this morning.)  Ravelry Project Page Link.

I’m still trying to figure out my Ravellenic knitting project.  I’ve got several possibilities for projects. I should probably narrow down my choices and maybe I’ll ask the blog what you think!  I’m kind of running out of time, aren’t I?

Oh, yes, once I'm past the gusset decreases, DH and I refer to my progress as "racing for the toe".

I always consider the heel flap my half-way point.
BTW: I am knitting the same socks but doing them toe-up because I'm afraid of running out of yarn (the skeins I'm using are small). Nice easy pattern!

I always consider the heel flap (or somewhere in the middle of it) to be the halfway point for my socks. I should note, however, that when folded at the heel, the socks are about the same length (toe meets cuff) as I don't make long sock legs - so it is logical that the heel is my mid-way point.

You're not alone in trying to figure out what to do for the Ravellenic project! I want to knit a cardigan but I just can't decide on a pattern! I need something fast but still interesting.

I separate my socks into thirds. One third to the heel flap, one third until the gusset is done and decreased back to the correct amount of knitting, and the final third after the last decrease round.
