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.
