As The Heel Turns

The Grey Heron sock KAL group all turned their first heel yesterday. During class time, they went from heel turning virg - - s, to accomplished turners! Diane is on vacation somewhere sunny and warm and we all hope she took her sock and book with her. We'd feel badly, Diane if you were the only 'virg - - - ' left in our crowd!

As last week, the day started as concentration central. 'New' Diane is concentrating hard. The wonderful thing about watching 'new' Diane turn her heel is that she has tried more than once in the past to do this and found the instructions confusing and complicated. To see her accomplish her heel turn so quickly and easily was gratifying!

And here she is later with heel turned amidst expressions of " I can't believe I did this!"

Arlene had problems with her yarn splitting. Every time she did the SSK on her short row. This look on her face? Frustration!
Not a quitter, though. She persevered and before she left for the day the heel was turned and her first round of gusset decreases done.

Ruth, our knitter/comedian, shows her turned heel and you can clearly see the marker for needle number one. Ruth's comment was " No one will believe I can knit socks"!
Well done, ladies! There was laughter and fun and turned heels. What better way to spend Wednesday afternoons.
