I’m working away merrily on my Spiral Boot Socks—so much so that I have forgotten time and again to take a progress photo to share with you (sorry about that). But I have a quandary, and it’s really all my fault.
I made the most elementary of blunders—I forgot to check my yardage. Yeah. I know.
The pattern calls for somewhere in the neighborhood of 450 yds of DK weight yarn. I have two skeins of my Berroco Comfort DK, which puts me around 350 yds. So my options are:
• carry on, maybe shortening the leg a bit so that they’re more mid-calf socks rather than knee socks. Not really my preference, but it’s a possibility.
• carry on and work a few rows of ribbing just before I run out of a skein, effectively making these Spiral Boot Legwarmers instead of socks. I’m actually really okay with this plan as I do “need” legwarmers.
• suck it up and buy one more skein of yarn (this eventuality is covered in my stash-busting plan, though should really be avoided because I shouldn’t be such an idiot). I’ve only found this color online in one place, though, and it would cost twice as much to ship the yarn to me as it would for the skein itself.
