Bad news in my inbox today. I cannot get any more yarn to finish my Muir shawl. Drat, drat, drat! I'm about halfway through the shawl, using a beautiful silk yarn from ArtFibers called Alfabeto in a somewhat strange space dyed colorway. The color has gradually grown on me. I don't know why I thought I had enough of this yarn....
perhaps it was that the yarn had no ball band so over time I only imagined it was enough for a whole shawl? This shawl was to be for a friend. I need to think if there is any way to salvage what I have and somehow complete it.
This situation does NOT improve my mood. I've just spent some time looking at blogs of two people whose work inspires me. I was looking for a bit of cheering up and inspiration, and I got both....until that email arrived about the yarn.
I need to find a way to make lemonade out of this, but my mind is a blank..... knitting has not gone well for me lately!
