Turned the heel!

Okay so I’ve turned the heel, finished the gusset and now I’m just decreasing the toe for the kitchner bind off! I cannot believe how EASY it all was…..oh, and I didn’t use a pattern. I didn’t want the stress of trying to be sure I got the pattern right so I just did K3, P2 for the leg and K2, P2 for the heel flap and the foot part is stocking stitch. I did do a little band of stocking stitch before I started the heel flap. Looks like this sock will fit Elijah! I purposely did the first pair in a neutral colour so if it fit the girls no biggie…..I’m so damn happy……Here’s what it looks like….

And here it is on Elijah’s foot!

I have S ‘n B tomorrow night so I’m going to be taking the second sock with me!

    Wow, this is fantastic – I really love the colors, and the fact that you didn’t work after a pattern but just went along is great! Are you becoming another sock-knitting-addict now? 😉

    Beautiful work. I can never get the kitchener stitch right for my socks.

    Show off.

    Just kidding! Man, they look GREAT! Almost makes me want to try again with some lovely yarn I bought last month. I ended up totally frogging the ones I had going because I (gulp) ran out of yarn three-quarters of the way done with number 2.

    I’m jinxed, I tell ya.
