i got yer flingin' flangin' sock right here!

What do you do when someone who doesn't knit thinks it's the most hilarious thing ever to ask you repeatedly to make them something?

If you're me, you cast on 12 stitches, do a few rows of 1x1 ribbing, a few more of straight stockinette, do a 4-stitch-wide heelflap, pick up 2 stitches on each side for the gussets, realize you didn't turn the heel, do a few short rows, and generally make it up as you go along until you have the World's Tiniest Spite Sock. (That's a quarter for scale.)

Ahahahaahaahahahaha! I have totally considered making tiny socks, but mainly to give people something to unwrap while I get my shit together and make their actual socks.
