A sock mystery...

 would that be called a sockestry? Anyway. For Good Beer  Week I decided to knit a relatively simple sock: Wedge, by Cookie A. I'm using the yarn that I bought last time I went to Wangaratta and, while I don't hate it, it's certainly not stripping up in the way I expected.

The mysery is this: I'm 90 percent sure I followed the pattern correctly. On  the foot the sock looks and feels fine. But take it off and it looks like the heels and the toe are rotated by 90 degrees. 
 
I looked on Ravelry and others seem to have found a similar thing. I'm going to finish the second sock and see if it looks the same. It's all very strange, but I guess if it's a comfortable, functional sock that what matters. Except it bothers me, because it's weird and odd.
