I may have run out of yarn.
I may have had to go looking for more of the same online.
I may have found some – in the US (because the skein I found in Germany cost 50% more!).
I may have been tempted to buy a couple more skeins in some other sensational colours while I was, you know, there.
I may have then surfed recklessly on and found another source of MadelineTosh closer to home.
And then I may have ordered a sweater’s worth of yarn from them, too. (I’m not sure, the yarn fumes are still pretty strong…)
Which means I may have bought a new pattern for that new yarn – as if I didn’t already have a zillion patterns.
Unbelievably, I did not run out of yarn! I was left with exactly
Better pictures by daylight sometime, I hope!
All finished – and the anticipation of all that other yarn (matching socks?!) to come! Yum!
PS the luxury was enhanced by the use of my Signature straight needles – love ’em!
That is a lucky, lucky piece of knitting, to have just enough! I always run out just before the end. Beautiful knitting as well. I love complicated patterns. You’re so right about the two stitches. It’s what you do with them that counts.
So hopeless at knowing how much I will need – therefore usually masses of leftovers ;o
Great pattern, btw.
I KNEW you’d have enough….and it’s gorgeous!!
Nice that you had faith – I wasn’t quite so sure & getting jittery, hence ordering more… (good excuse!)
