A Dip In The Frog Pond

This cabled sock is driving me mad. More specifically, my tendency to take poor notes, or no notes at all, is the actual culprit. I am using the short row heel technique for the first time. Sock #2's heel has just been knit and is considerably smaller and shorter than that of Sock #1. For the life of me I can't figure out why. I thought I had done the two exactly the same.
Then again, there's the poor notes issue.
My first instinct was to rip back the second heel and make it look more like the first. However, Sock #1, being the first attempt, is not very tidy. Alas, ripping and re-knitting an entire foot seems to be in my future.
