The only sane thing to do.. . .
It was a tragedy of the highest order. I was watching Gilmore Girls Season Five Finale on DVD and it looked like the show and the felted slippers I was working on would finish at the same time. My lovely self-dyed yarn was looking fabulous and I could not wait to felt and see the results. Then---disaster. I ran out of yarn with a ROW AND A HALF LEFT (plus bind off). I cursed. I considered ripping back on both slippers but, I need to make sure that there is enough to cover the foot (these are ballet slipper style). I paced. I considered my options: save the project for september, have two different sized slippers, burn the silly things. Chocolate was called in. Then, I did the only sane thing one could do under the circumstances: I ordered more yarn. Back on the wagon now, but the process of ordering more yarn was sorely tempting. I stuck to only the yarn I needed to finish the ROW AND A HALF. I now have a running list of yarn I want in Sept. once the current projects are knitted. Anyone else out there starting "wish lists" for future projects?
