I started knitting a new scarf. This one.
I got the pattern a little while ago. I finally had some time to try it out. I grabbed some yarn from my stash and jumped in.
On Sunday I realized that I was not going to have enough yarn to finish. I'm nowhere near the end of the scarf, but I'm just about at the end of the skein. And that's when I started to panic.
I had been to the yarn store last Wednesday. I picked up stuff for another project (on hold while I wait to see the recipient and get her measurements). I saw the yarn that I am using for the alligator scarf. There was one skein left. It looked like it might be a discontinued color.
So, what were the chances that that one skein would still be there now?
Turns out that I was in luck. That skein was still there. Whew! Crisis averted.
I'll work on the alligator scarf until I get the measurements for the other project. I'll finish the scarf eventually. I'll post pictures when I'm done.
