Where We Come To A Screeching Halt

I'm out of yarn.  2 1/2 rounds before I start toe decreases.  I read through the comments yesterday and while the toe in a different color idea is genius (and I hadn't thought of it), I don't want to do that to these socks.  I think they're really pretty and I want the toes to match.  I will have to do a pair of pink socks with yellow toes though because that just sounds really cute and I am the Pink Lemon!

I ended up looking in Ravelry for destashes in this color and found two people with it (one person actually had two skeins), so I've already paid for another skein and it should be on it's way to me soon.  This will be faster than going through Blue Moon since they might or might not have Rosebud dyed and ready to go.  I love this color, so it's not a hardship to have another skein around here.  I'll just use it to make fingerless mitts or something.  So a little bump in the road to a finished pair of socks, but Yeah Ravelry!

Have a great weekend and I hope you don't run out of yarn!

A little solid pink could be useful in the future: embroidery, beekeeper's quilt, who knows?

I just would have ripped out the toe of the first sock and knit them both with contrasting (and now matching) toes.

I would rather have the perfect pair of socks and use the leftover for something else, than a pair with a different toe. Good choice and lovely knitting
