drat


Progress on my second Komet sock has come to a screeching halt. Just before the toe decreases I've run out of yarn! Now what?

Plan A: buy more. I'll be yarn shopping this weekend, so I'll check to see if they have any on hand.

Plan B: search some out to buy or trade from other Ravelers.

Plan C: deep breath ... rip out both socks and reknit with a shorter leg. Fingers crossed that it doesn't come to this!

Meanwhile, I'm casting on this toy bear. There's lots of chenille novelty yarn in my stash to be used. Glancing through other Ravelers' projects, seems like the yarn is most suited to scarves, throws or toys. When I happened across this charity, well, serendipity. Time to make a bear or two, or maybe several if it really works out well.

hope you don't have to rip and get some more yarn instead

I hate when that happens! Good luck in finding the yarn. Someone, a few years ago, asked if anyone had a certain yarn and I had a bit left and sent it to her in Canada and it turned out it was the same dyelot. Karma?
