That's one of my favourite movie quotes, and quite fitting considering the language I uttered today. The horrible has happened.....
I ran out of yarn!
Just typing those words has me on the verge of another outburst. My pattern called for 1100yds. I had 1400yds. I heard tales that this book was very much off the mark when it came to yardage needed for their patterns, but with a 300yd buffer I thought I'd be safe.
It's not like I can pop out to my local to get another ball. I ordered this online from Germany, because it is the only place that carried the colourway I wanted. Hopefully the dye lot will be the same, not that it's a bit concern because unless there is a HUGE difference it should be unnoticeable.
I'm just so pissed.
The last time I ordered from them, it only took 6 days for the yarn to arrive. Not bad at all as far as I was concerned. The real burn this time is that I expect the yarn will arrive next Monday. Only I won't be here. grrrrrr I'll be in Montreal on a mini vacation. I had such great plans of knitting on my shawl on the train and with a bit of luck it would be finished by the time I got home.
I'm going to go cast on a pair of socks.
