Have Turned the Heel
I have turned the heel on my first sock. What once lay flat became something of a different shape, awkward to manage as I knit the gusset but hopefully wearable once I'm done.
I think I can take "learn to knit socks" off my list of goals, since from this point onward there are only decreases to make in the right places and some Kitchener stitch. Nothing new in the way of skills.
No, I can't strike it off: it's not there on the list. I checked and what I have written down is "knit a pair of socks." That requires me to finish this sock and knit a mate for it before I give myself a gold star.
Never mind, the texture on the eye of partridge heel flap is consolation enough.
