Turned the Heel

Lately it seems that I have made only socks that blend in with the blue quilt that’s always on my lap.

The heel has been turned on the socks I’m making . . both at once on the two circular needles.  When using this method to make socks, the heel always confuses me so I was happy to get past that point.  I would not have chosen yellow for the heel but with the striping yarn, I’m never sure what will end up where.

My goal is to get these finished and get another pair on the needles so I can have those to knit on while mom and dad are here.  I only have two sets of needles this size and I have to pay attention to cast on using this method so if I can finish these, and get more cast on, then I can mindlessly knit if I get a chance while mom and dad are visiting.  Maybe I’ll knit something that isn’t blue!

    I always have to pay attention to casting on and the heel too. I try to get those parts done before carrying a pair on a trip.
