I seriously didn't think I would be able to do a sock, but it's actually starting to take shape and that shape is definitely that of a sock.
I only made it with a 4 inch top because I don't have enough yarn to do taller ones. But that's ok, I prefer shorter socks anyway.
Today I make the heel flap and turned the heel. I wasn't sure if I could do the heel turn, but I just followed the instructions and sure enough I had a turned heel! Woohoo!
I'm now working on shaping the gusset. I did make one mistake. I knitted one round as instructed, and then did a decrease round. I was supposed to do another knitted round before doing another decrease round, but I forgot and did another decrease round instead. Oops. I'm hoping it won't mess it up too badly.
