Don't worry - this one isn't a Christmas present - this one is mine.
For the first time I am deviating from the sock pattern (Ann Budd's basic sock pattern). When I got down to the heel flap I realized I had two too many stitches (78 rather than 76). I knit my heel flap with 38 stitches, then decreased my gusset right down to 76 to correct my mistake. I knit a woman's large for the sock, but started the toe decreases as if it were a woman's small. I also knit a rounder toe than I usually do - I started the kitchener stitch at 18 stitches on each needle - I think that suits my short wide feet better.
