"Do I have enough yarn left to finish both socks? Do I really?"
This is the sock funk. That doubt, that nagging voice in your head that asks again and again if you're sure you're going to have enough yarn left when you get to the toe of the second sock.
I squidge the ball of yarn.
Should it really be that squishy? I should have cut a centimetre off the ankle; I know I should. Or done a few rows less on the ribbing.
Common sense says I will be fine. I've knitted socks before and never run out of yarn. I'm following the pattern precisely and the pattern says a 100g ball will be enough yarn. I have lots of these little balls of leftover sock yarn in my knitting basket to illustrate that there is always some yarn to spare.
And yet...and yet...that sock funk is still there. And I know it will be until I'm grafting off the toe on the second sock. The solution is to knit as fast as I can and prove that sock funk wrong.
Again. As I always do.
