So, here are my salad socks! I made these really tall, they are super fun.
And there is the sock surgery madness:

- I screwed up the toe decreases on these socks and continued to decrease every other row for the whole toe instead of speeding up the decreases at 40 stitches. So, they have kind of a pointy toe. Not a big deal, because I remembered to make them match.
