We have heel turn

It took me only two goes this time around to do the heel turn properly. I think I'm going to enjoy wearing these socks but I'm not enjoying knitting with this yarn as much as the 100 percent wool. The Opal yarn splits a little when unknitted and re-knitted. It is 75 percent wool and 25 percent nylon which is meant to be more durable than pure wool but we'll see.

My attitude to yarn is very 'grandma'-ish. The more I knit, the more I like pure wool.

The socks are coming along great. I love the pattern that's emerging.

Gotta admit, I'm a 100% wool fan too. That's why I'm loving the current socks which are made of 100% merino. Have you been to Marta's yet?
