I checked yardage on ravelry and thought that I could sneak by with my lone skein by making up the missing measurements with the help of a pretty little detail I saw another raveler use. By this point I began feeling rather clever using up the last of the pink yarn from this project.
It was almost obscene as I sniggered to myself while rifling through my (very limited) button stash for the oh-so-perfect buttons that I already owned. So very adorable!
Such a quick little knit! Before I knew it I was getting to the last of my skein.
Just a tad too early. That left arm is only 1/2 way knitted up and the poor right arm doesn't even exist at all. But you remember that I was rather clever about this whole project so I already had to options at my beck and call. First, I could check out ravelry for someone with a partial skein. Ravelry don't fail me now, I prayed.
Ravelry I hate you, I cursed as it failed me, but I have a back up plan. I was headed to my mother's the next day and I knew the little yarn shop near her had Louet stocked. I remembered from last time I visited. Yarn Garden don't fail me now! *A two hour drive later* DOH! They stopped carrying Louet, because of poor communication with the distributor.
Anyone got any Louet gems (opal) sport weight in pink panther they want to get rid of? The left sleeve is sad and alone. There's a cold little baby being born in December that needs to be wrapped in love made from wool. *tear* I'll buy or trade.
