I have turned the heel on the sock! Venice Beach Ice Cream Sock #1 has a heel.... the yarn is doing all kinds of interesting stripy and wavy patterny things all by itself, and the pattern is documented (but not here yet cos it's seeeekrut) and for a while there, I was feeling very one with the fu this evening. Then I leaned over to pet the puppeh, accidentally snapped my dpn and the fu went away. Ain't that always the case?
But there is sock. It has heel. All shall be well.
