for the first time ever, i have run out of yarn on a project. moreover, i have run out of yarn on a project on which i should have had enough because...
1. i have the amount the pattern calls for.
2. i am getting gauge.
3. um. this never happens to me.
this almost happened with the sweater i made my father. according to the book, i needed 7 skeins, i bought 9. i used all but 4 yards of the last skein. nice.
but at least i had what i needed that time, and more importantly i could get more because i bought the yarn where i work. is that the case this time? no way. this is bright red vintage angora i bought in ohio at the yarn shop my mum and i only go to because well... it is there. and there may be something interesting.
the kind i only need 4 more yards of to finish a project. gah.
good news: my mum found it, and when i go visit for turkey day, i will be able to finish my project.
