Notes

Making this as a birthday gift for my sister. His socks are so damn cute!

Knit entirely on DPNs. I felt like the instructions for shaping the heel and foot of both the socks and the feet could have been clearer. I ended up doing some improvising, but things turned out well. When I finished the first sock, I tried it on one of the little monster feet, and I wasn’t happy with how stretched out it looked. I ended up ripping the sock back to the heel and only working 2 decrease rounds (so that the foot of the sock was worked over 22 sts rather than 20) and I was much happier with the fit.
