I played Yarn Chicken with my Moon River Shawl.
And I lost (super, super hard).I decided that before I started in earnest on my Papaya Sweater, I’d finish off my Moon River Shawl. After all, I only have to bind off, block it and I’d be done!
Of course, I underestimated the sheer length of the rows on this thing… That’s the worst part about making half-circle shawls. They start all cute and fun, only a handful of stitches each row, then before you know it: BAM! 400 stitches per row. You can never budget enough yarn for that!
Or at least I can’t.
Either way, I spent the morning yesterday (about three hours) carefully binding off, only to make it about three-quarters of the way across the last row before completely running out of yarn.I thought about doing something fancy to make up the difference- buying more yarn (but I’ve lost the label, so I don’t know the colorway), or knitting with a similar yarn (but I don’t have anything similar enough in my stash), or even binding off in a contrasting color (but that would entail ripping out the bind off anyway). Ugh!
I think I have to rip out the bind off, and rip out the row before it, too. That should get me enough yarn to make it all the way across.
BUT I DON’T WANNA!
