Who knew?

I'm not quite a sock-knitter, yet, but I did get the heel turned and the gussets picked up. I was very, very silly when it was time to turn the heel. I looked at the instructions and said, no, not possible, they want me to do what? After 2 attempts at translating the instructions into something that made sense, I decided to try that they said. Of course, they worked. Perfectly! Now I can hardly wait to do my next sock - turning the heel is so much fun!

As for Gryffindor...I just wanted to be sure the Sorting Hat hadn't made a mistake the first time -


Want to Get Sorted?
I'm
a Gryffindor!

Not Ravenclaw? Are you sure? :)

The sock is looking good! I thought about asking how it was coming along a couple of times, but thought maybe it, well, wasn't ...

P.S. I'm Ravenclaw.

Another Ravenclaw checking in here:)! In this quiz, anyway...
Woo-Hoo to the heel - I DID ONE, TOO. It's a HUGE sock to be felted, and I'll post it when the second one is done, pre-felting. Weren't you and I just saying how turning a heel was nothing at all;)!!

Brava:)!!!!!!
