Following the Pattern

I'm knitting Rib and Cable Socks by Nancy Bush (IW Knits Fall 2005). I've already made one. I'm about turn the heel and that is a problem.
I have to follow the pattern and I don't usually bring the pattern with me.

As already written, the heel of the sock doesn't fit me. But I won't frog and I'm sure I'm going to follow the pattern.
Why? It is fun to knit something different. It is fun to try something I've never done before.
I usually use short-row heel with wrap or ordinary heel flap. They are fine and hardly uncomfortable to wear. Still if there's a heel pattern that I've never tried, I definetely knit that pattern.
After all, you won't know how does it feel unless you knit it and try it on. If it doesn't fit you, it would be a nice sample for the future socks you knit. It could be one of your collection of different heel pattern. And I like that.

Well, I have to memorise how to turn the heel or take the pattern with me.
