New Knitting

I'm taking time out from Mr. C's cable heavy sweater to do a quick pair of socks.

The colors are not showing up well here. They are truly much better. I am rediscovering the perfection that is Opal sock yarn. This yarn has a real strength and thickness to it that's hard to beat. It feels awesome on your feet. I was going to put this in the Christmas box and get a head start for one of the girls but I've fallen love with these socks. There is only one propblem:
This is not looking or feeling like enough yarn to finish the second sock. And I don't remember ever having a problem with that before with a skein of Opal. I use the same sock pattern all the time. I am so famous for this. Grrr...

That is a very cool colorway! Is that the tiger one?? I love it!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you don't run out of yarn, but it seems very odd that you'd look like you're going to run short using the same yarn and pattern as always. I wonder if maybe you got a bum skein? If you have a scale, you could weigh the finished sock versus the yarn left to see what you're working with (and if the total is less than what the ball band says it should be, I would definitely contact the yarn company about it!)
