Citrine Socklets started ... and a question for the group

I've cast on my first 'official' pair of socks for this month - the Citrine Socklets from Interweave Holiday Knits.

I'm knitting them in a lime green cotton, and loving the pattern.





This month I've already completed my Tickled Pink Socks started before Xmas (see earlier blog), and have nearly finished these Pink Ribbon Socks (left) started at the same time. Unfortunately I've run out of yarn to finish them - what do I do now?

Question for group:

Do I unpick them (NO, please no) or unpick part of them (NO again) or do I just dip into my stash, choose something similar or totally contrasting, and finish them anyway? As they're a pair meant for house socks, & they're 4 ply baby acrylic, I think I'll probably do the latter ... unless anyone out there has a brilliant solution?

if they are just house socks I'd just pick something random from stash to finish them. it would make them quirky too. Well thats only good if you like quirky tho I guess.

I have done the same thing with mittens, so I cut a stitch at the ribbing and unwound it, then used that to finish and a contrasting colour to redo the rib

I would pick a contrasting yarn and make some fun & funky socks!

Thanks for all these ideas. I'll decide what to dao and post a picture here - funky sounds good!

I would knit another yarn that you like. After all, once your shoe is on, who's going to know but you? (Just remember to keep your shoes on!)

If it were me I'd have to rip the other toe & use that yarn to knit the other foot until they were the same length, then do both toes in something else.

I'm kinda neurotic about things being even, though... ;)

I think that whatever you do will be great!!
