Is this enough for a small soaker?

I've only knitted one soaker and it was out of leftovers, so I have no idea how much it takes... I have 1 50g skein of Noro Keryon (I think 110 yards). Is that enough for a size small?

According to her it would not be. I used to have a website with a good list of charts saved for most baby things but I can't find it to double check.

It MAY be able to be pinched out since it's a fluffier yarn. If you're going to be short it will be by about 20 yards. So maybe a shorter cuff, OR find something fun and funky that would match to use for the cuffs.

Can find trim? Once You do the waistband and cuffs in trim I'd bet that would be just about right.

I can JUST get a small pair of longies out of 220 yards so I'd think you could do it with half that. I know I can easily get 2 newborn soakers out of 220.

I somehow managed to get one out of it. It is a small/medium size and I had to do a (slightly short) twisted drawstring because I didn't have enough for an icord.
