We scored a new record for rain in the month of March.

Perhaps you’d like to see the steps to a sock, starting with the heel flap, which I make about 2″, using half the stitches.
The first photo is the front, the second is how the back of the flap looks.
Then the heel is turned.
Next the stitches are picked up on one side of the heel. I used an extra needle to pick these up as it is easier for me. This is the most difficult part of knitting socks and is not difficult.
Then I knit across to the other side and pick up those stitches the same way with an extra needle.
When I knit across the front, I knit in the pattern. The stockinette stitch feels better under the foot. I have now knit the entire sock circle and am working on the ankle area. Because I knit a 7″ leg, when I fold the sock at the heel, I am half done and can easily see how far to go to finish.
