I think I'd lose the will to live!

You can also use dental floss if you don't want to use your good sock yarn.
Two lifelines! I'll try that tonight! I'm using offcuts of sock wool from the first pair I made. I left too long a tail when I cast on and must have left about 3ft for the first toe graft! The bits came in handy, got in the way a bit that first row but I think their usefulness more than outweighs that.
