I am trying to knit socks but ever time I work the heal or toe I get holes. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? ( see photo)

Sandy, here is a hint for you. I received this from another loom knitter and since then have made lots of socks without problem. You are dropping your stitches and it is probably the wraps on the pegs. Solution is this:

On first wrap and turn, lift the loop off the peg and wrap the peg, then place loop back on.

On second wrap and turn, just wrap the peg so you will have a wrap on bottom, loop on the peg in the middle and then a wrap on the top.

When you knit the wrap,loop,wrap off the peg, knit them all off together. I have saved all my wraps and loops on the pegs this way without dropping any. The sock heel and toe section still looks real nice too!!
