My First Socks, Day 4-5

Finally,  The Heel

After several attempts at turning the heel, The Sock is coming along smoothly-

We took Saturday afternoon off as work was caught up and looking forward to getting started on The Heel. I had all day Sunday to work on it too, and was able to tackle this new “turn of events” without any interruptions. I didn’t have to bake biscotti, although they are now depleted down to where I can see the bottom of the cookie jar, so baking is on the calendar for next Sunday.

I ripped the heel out 5 times before finally getting the turn centered and was then able to move on to the instep.

Not much to see of the instep yet, just my 3 needles all crossed over-I’ll post the foot when I get more added one, but the gusset is looking like the picture now 🙂
