I love knitting socks! Every time I turn a heel I get a thrill. The magic of sticks and strings turning into something real and useful is so satisfying. This sock is the CLASSIC SOCK PATTERN, from Folk Socks by Nancy Bush. The trick is learning how to do short rows. I am using sock reinforcing yarn for the heels and toe on a set of #2 double-pointed needles.

Had a great lunch yesterday with my two Marys! I showed them the "turn" and am hopeful that the next time we have lunch they will have "turning" stories too.
