So it turns out, if you want to make a pair of Monkey socks with Panda Cotton, you're going to come up a little short:



I had turned the heel, reduced back down to 64 stitches and was doing a few more rows before starting the toe decreases.

And does the LYS where I bought the yarn have any more of that color?  Nope.

I think I have a solution that I like even more than the original:  I'm going to buy a ball of Maizy in lime green (it coordinates, I checked), rip back to the heel, and make the heel and toe in Maizy.

Still ... grrrr!   I hate having to buy three balls of yarn to make a pair of socks.  It doesn't seem right.  Angry

Awww... don't you hate it when you just don't have quite enough yarn to finish something? I think your modified socks will be awesome though!

You must have had a short skein because I used Panda Cotton for my Monkeys and had enough, although with maybe 10 yards left over.

I had just enough also with my skeins of Panda Cotton when I knit the pattern.  I'd contact the manufacturer.
