This is kind of a big deal, or should I say "heal"! I just can't contain myself, I just learned how to turn the heal of a sock! I can't believe that I pretty much got it right on my first try.
I just got some new knitting needles from Knit Picks ( size 4 interchangeable circulars) and I was playing with the "magic loop" method of knitting in the round, when I thought, hey, this would be a good time to practice turning a heal. Nah Nah! This process has always been very intimidating, yet I knew I would have to concur this fear to get to sock making heaven.
I am just really happy right now, most of the time when I knit something it starts out as a "thneed" (a fine something that all people need) and ends up a "UFO", (unfinished object). I have a lot of these hovering around my house. So just maybe with this little bit of knowledge my first pair of socks wont end up as "sweet spirits".
