Piggy can haz sock!

Well, a heel, anyway.

A gusset, on the other hand...we'll have to see.

This is my first-ever sock. Actually, that is not strictly true. I have made a half-hearted attempt at  socks before (with this exact yarn -- Koigu PPM -- in fact). But this is the first time I've made it to the magic that is the turning of the heel. 

Yesterday morning, Piggy was a born-again sock virgin. Today...well, today she's not.

Yes, it is small. It is for my niece, who's turning four this month. Yes, Piggy chickened out and went with a mini sock. But that's a heel, baby.


  1. Huzzah! Behold the magic of the turned heel. :) Congrats girl.

  2. That is one HOT looking heel! Great job!!

  3. Yay! The heel is the most brain intensive part - soon you will be knitting socks all the time (or at least buying sock yarn with that intention! ☺).

  4. That is one mighty fine looking heel there, Ms. Yarnpiggy. Welcome to my obsession!

  5. That is indeed a heel, and a right sexy one, too! Well done! (And..welcome down the rabbit hole...heheheheheheh!)
