One step forward, two steps back

I had one of the Jaywalkers completed this morning, but this is what it looks like now.
I had to frog back to below the heel. In my haste to finish this sock, I never tried it on (except for the photo from this post. As a result, I could barely fit the thing on my rather large foot. It turns out I turned the heel about two inches too soon. Ugh!
So that is where I am at now. I am glad that I like my socks somewhat on the short side, only about three to four inches above the ankle bone, which means less time wasted knitting the mistake. Maybe this time, after turning the heel I will make sure to try it on so I won't have to frog it again.
