I’m moving along quickly on the second one, so hopefully, I will have my very first pair just in time for our family camping trip to Vermont.  I can’t think of anything better to keep my feet toasty warm by the campfire.

I’ve decided to be adventurous in knitting this afternoon.  For the longest time, I’ve wanted to make myself some socks, but socks are supposedly one of the harder things to knit.  This is because of “turning the heel”, which is what your do to make socks that are L-shaped as opposed to tube socks that have no real heel.

By posting this, I am throwing the hat over the wall.  My very first sock is now ready to have its heel turned.  So I am now off to try to figure this out with a ton of books and websites as my guide.  Wish me luck!  Hopefully, I will get the knack of it quickly and return to tell you all of my victorious triumph.
