Easy Slumber Socks: How To Shape The Heel (Turning)

We haven't completely finished with our Sewing Up theme, and will return to it in later weeks, but in response to your requests we've decided to focus this week on turning, specifically in relation to our Easy Slumber Socks and creating the heel shape.
