Friends....I'm afraid there might be some frogging in my future.
Everything was going great with my first Pomatomus sock until I got halfway through the heel gusset and noticed how little yarn I have left. There is only 1/2 ounce left. I've used 1.5 ounces for the leg and heel flap and the first part of the gusset decreases. So, what do you think? Should I just rip now or continue on until I know for sure I'll have enough or not?
You see, the pattern calls for 3 repeats of the stitch pattern for the leg before starting the heel flap. This definitely makes for a long leg on the sock. Doing 2 repeats of the stitch pattern would make the leg shorter but still plenty long for a respectable sock. In fact, as I was doing the leg, I nearly chose to only do 2 repeats but then told myself that I wanted to follow the directions exactly. I just haven't made enough socks to be able to eyeball how much I'm going to need for the foot. :(
