No, not a worldwide catastrophe kind of thing. I just keep running out of yarn on my WIPs and the major bummer part is I can’t get more! I finished one front of my tote bag, and decided to do the sides and bottom next because I could knit them in the dark while we watched movies. Half way through The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, I squished the skeins and realized that there wasn’t enough there to knit the other front so I started frogging. I did find one place on the internet that has a few skeins, but the S/H is more than the yarn. The cheapskate in me has a problem with that. I think I’ll knit up the other front and see what’s left- maybe just do narrower sides. Here’s the finished front:
I turned next to the Starfish shawl, determined to finish it so I can start something else springy. Just a few rounds from completion I ran out of yarn. Of course, Elann doesn’t have anymore, so I can either finish in a compatible color or just make it smaller. Unable to deal with making decisions, I dug out a cotton sweater I started last summer only to cast it aside because (you'll never guess) I didn’t have enough yarn. (It was unlabeled Ebay yarn advertised as being enough for a woman’s long sleeved sweater. Ha.) I am going to finish the body, then decided whether to make it a vest or short sleeved or whatever. I’m kinda using a Vogue pattern to get the armhole shapings right, but thought I’d be smart and knit it in one piece to the armholes and add fancier ribbing and change the round neck to a V which is more flattering on me and short row the shoulder shaping so I can 3-needle bind off. I finished one front and noticed a small mistake. I didn’t knit in the buttonholes. Am I Queen BooBoo or what? I could do one big, cool button at the start of the v-neck, or DD#1 suggested snaps. I think I should just start something else. Everything I have going obviously isn’t working.
On a personal note (feel free to ignore), I really didn’t accomplish much last week, and this week isn’t promising to be much better. I started a new medication to combat the side effects of another medication, only the new one makes me sleepy, nauseous, dizzy, and generally muddle brained. (“How can you tell the difference?” my dear husband asks.) Sometimes just seeing my needles move makes it worse. I plan to compensate by planning more projects for when I feel better. And I obviously need more yarn since I keep running out.
