Yesterday was busy

I went to Iowa and visited with new friends.  Knowing that I was going to spend the day somewhere not conducive to complicated knitting I snagged some yarn with the pattern dyed in and my favorite plain vanilla pattern. (the thing I dislike about Plain Vanilla socks?  It makes short feet look even shorter!)  I did an extra good job matching the yarn for both socks - don't you agree?

 And then I got to the heel turn.  Why is that one stripe just a little wider?

 This caused the following problem. Well, that and, apparently, the blue speckled strip is also a little longer on one section. I'm miffed.

Blast!  All that work and I'm still thwarted! Next time I'm not even going to bother trying.  (like I've NEVER said that before)
