Oh so Giddy
Who'da thunk a pair of plain stockinette socks would end up being so much trouble?
Apparently this yarn had other ideas of what it wanted to be, because it resisted being knit into plain socks wholeheartedly.
Cider Moon Glacier is a lovely 100% merino sportweight...but the skeins are a little skimpy at 253 yards. I didn't think this was going to be a huge problem because of being able to knit them on US3s. I finished a sock...see happy finished sock:
2/3 of the way through the second sock, I ran out of yarn (seems to be my current theme, considering the Buffalo fiasco). Since getting more yarn wasn't an option (sold out and any new batch with this color, should it appear in the near future at all, wouldn't match), I had to do major surgery to be able to do the last 3" of the foot of the second sock. I cut off both completed ribbed cuffs about an inch into the stockinette leg, finished the foot of the second sock, then reknit shorter cuffs.
Oy vey. I love this yarn, but I'm hesitant to order more since, despite my tendency to like shorter legs, these are barely longer than anklets...and buying 2 skeins just makes it too pricey to justify. Maybe for gift socks for folks with smaller feet...
