Drat!

Have any of you ever had one of those patterns just kind of beat you up for no good reason? The Jaywalkers sock pattern does that to me. It's a great pattern, it's easy to follow (especially if you read it...false start #1), it looks nice (when you are able to count...huge number of tinks/ribbits) and fits nicely (once you decide on how many stitches you really need to cast on (false start #2, which got all the way to the instep).

I'm happy to say that I am heading towards the home-stretch on these socks; however, I got all the way to here:

Note that I seem to have about a foot of yarn left with about 1/2" of toe left to knit. Drat! My plan is to work along on the second sock (with the second ball of yarn) until I get to the same point. Either I'll have enough to finish both socks or I'll just have to knit the tip of the toe in a coordinating color.

Some projects are just like that.
