Unfortunately, I was well into the leg of the sock when I realized that the cast on was a little snug on my calf (I'm the girl who has to buy those special wide boots...) I decided to give these to my lovely friend Jill, who has normal sized calves.
Fun socks to knit and a fun gift for a friend. Done, and done!

- I didn't like how square the toe ended up by following the directions in the pattern... so I unpicked my graft (a very not-fun process!!!) and modified toe as follows: follow directions until 38 stitches remain, then work round 2 until 22 stitches remain.
