Two at a time, toe-up socks

I am using instructions from Melissa Morgan-Oakes, using yarn I hand-painted with Kool-Aid dyes during a demo at Wolcott Mill last year.  The yarn is very soft, a fine wool with 15% nylon.    On this pair, I lost track of what I was doing on the toes, and didn't realize the odd pointy toe shape until I had knit quite a ways past the toes.  My solution is going to be to finish the socks, try them on, then decide if remediation is needed.  If it is, I will clip a thread and re-knit the toes in the traditional direction. I am sweating whether I will have enough yarn left to make much of a cuff.
