You know how it is when you get towards the end of a ball of yarn, and it gets all loose and floppy? I inevitably pause in my knitting and wind it up into a small cake... so it's not so floppy. Not sure why I do that, but I do. I guess I like to think it gives me a better impression of how much yarn I have left.
I wish I hadn't done that. This little ball, which is getting loose after only a couple of rows, somehow doesn't look long enough to finish my sock:
I am decreasing for the toes... but since I do right and left socks, I start that further from the actual toes that I did when I worked totally symmetrical toes. This makes me nervous. Mutter mutter mutter...
So, I'll keep knitting and hoping I make it to the end without running out. Otherwise... my beloved publisher will not be getting a pair of these for the photo shoot.
And while I knit on the toes... I'll do a bit of Unconcious Muttering for fun
