Sock, Part II February 20, 2010

Filed under: Knitting — thehobbyholic @ 12:27 pm

I did it. I crossed over in knitting world. I turned my first heel of my very first sock!

For those of you that don’t knit, this isn’t a huge deal. But in knitting world, there is cheering and celebration from knitters everywhere.

With a little help from my friend, the EVOO bottle, here are a few pictures.

Starting to take shape...

It is a magical moment.

Just a little bit showing, but that's it. A turned heel!

Something you do, but while doing it, have no idea why or how it is working.

I love the fact the bottom of the heal starts with a new color. Couldn't have planned it better myself.

You have to let all understanding go and just follow where the yarn takes you. And I did it! *Insert happy dance here*

Next, there is something about picking up stitches. A gusset. And joining the heal with the other stitches I had to neglect to get to this occasion. But I think I will wait till Thursday, when I have the help of an expert.
