Little sock goes ripit, ripit, ripit

My attempt at making one of Cat Bordhi’s discovery socks didn’t go very well. I did discover that it was too tight to go over my heel. I’ve ripped back to the arch of the foot and I’ll set the project aside for a while. I might turn this into a classic sock and make a discovery sock with larger yarn. I’m a bit discouraged, I won’t kid you.

This view shows most of the foot, the heel, and the too-tight cuff. 🙁
