- So simple! Review by Pam
Finally, a simple, understandable demonstration of what it means to "pick up one or two extra stitches" to avoid gaps.

- great explanation and photography Review by Margie
Wish I had this a few years ago. Would have prevented me from having holes. Now use for refresher on what to do for top down socks.

- helped my socks lose the gaps Review by Michelle
I found her explanation for the gaps helpful and agree with other reviewers that the gaps shown on the video are probably due to the large gauge to make it easier to see. I had tried other methods in the past with little help and when I tried this I finally didn't have holes to go fix later so I was quite pleased. She is simple and straightforward in her style.

- Interesting 'closing the gap' technique Review by Mac
I just finished using this technique with small gauge DPNs and I was not very impressed with the results. I get better results by simply picking up a stitch on either side of the gusset gap and then knitting those two stitches together on the next round. Much easier with better results.
But all is not lost!! She gives a veritable GEM of a technique with regards to tightening up the line of picked-up stitches along the heel flap by knitting into the back of those pick-ups (not the slips) on the first 'return to the round'. Worked A-Mazingly well!!

- Interesting technique Review by Mac
Very interesting and I'm looking forward to trying it out. It gave a good explanation of why the gaps occur at the gusset, and it did serve to minimize the gap, but it definitely did not eliminate it, as the gap was still visible on her sample sock. But this may have been partially due to the large gauge she was using to enhance visibility. I'll be interested to see how it works on a smaller scale...
