Short Row Heel

I managed to get the first short row heel done last night. I used the short row heel from the Crazy Toes and Heels Sock Book by Queen Kahuna. This short row heel is in the add on section of the book. I was a bit confused at first but when I took the time to read everything carefully it ended up being fairly simple. Since this is a test for me to see how I like things, the next sock I am going to work the short row heel with the heel gussett from the same book. The one thing I am not sure how to avoid is some loose stitches. I think you can see what I am talking about when you look at the picture. I'll see if I can get it to look better when I do the second sock.

    Can you bring that book next week, to SNB? I'm interested in reading the bit about a short-row heel with a gusset. I like the short-row heel, but depending on the gauge of the yarn it can come out a bit shallow for my foot. I don't have a problem with it in a heavier sock yarn, but Lorna's Laces has such a teeny row gauge that my short-row heel didn't work out as well as I would have liked. I've ripped it back and haven't even picked up that sock again in ages.
