I've run into a bit of an issue with C's socks. You see that incomplete toe? You see the tiny little thread hanging off of it? Yes, I've run out of yarn. In hindsight, I really should have realized that this pattern eats yarn like crazy, but I was denial until the very end. I've actually reached the last pattern repeat, and am poised to move onto the toe, but I'm now dead in the water. So I've ordered more yarn (because naturally, I had to use a mail order yarn for these socks). Family Christmas is this Monday, so C will be unwrapping his incomplete sock with an IOU. He'll probably find the whole thing amusing, and he since he and my father are driving out to Michigan for the holiday, depending on how the mail works, I actually have a chance of finishing them before they get back. I'm just very annoyed with myself for not noticing until it was far to late to pick another pattern. Oh well. Live and learn.
