They can't all be winners

It's been a week of tough decisions, including deciding to rip out this nearly-finished sock when I finally came around to the reality that this would not fit anyone I know. There are a few flaws that  contributed to the poor fit, IMHO: the too-short heel flap, and the unstretchy bias lines created by the two columns of twisted stitches at the front of the ankle. 

I considered ripping back to above the heel flap, lengthening the heel flap then modifying the design on the top of the ankle, but ultimately decided it wouldn't be worth it. Already thinking about what sick pattern I'll start next with this lovely yarn.
