So I'm working on a modified Booga bag with WOTA in hollyberry, spruce, and grass. I just ran out of hollyberry midstripe! Arrrrgh. So now I have to order more online and wait for it to come! Poo. I don't mind too much if I don't get the same dyelot. It's a beginner project so any variances in color will just add character! :rofling: I just want to keep working on it! But this gives me an excuse to order some sock yarn for when I finally decide to persue that new skill...

It's annoying when you run out of yarn mid project, but it does give you a guilt-free excuse to start something new. Its a shame you had to order more yarn, though. :--- I think it's always good to 'round out' orders with a little extra. ;)

I too hate running out of yarn..and if you HAVE to have the same dyelot then its a total nightmare!!! :(

In highschool(before I learned that i love to knit) I asked my Mum to knit me this sweater...it was to DIE for :heart: , anyways, she ran out of yarn & it is now with me in a bag incomplete...I would so love to finish it but the yarn is no longer around(thats why my Mum couldnt finish) seems she got the very last bunch...wish there was something i could do..

I believe there is a place on ebay that you can list a yarn that you are looking for...if you happen to remember the name of the yarn, maybe someone out there has a few random balls in the back of their stash.

Well I ordered 2 balls of KP sock yarn Dancing in the Jig colorway to round off my order. My husband will ask me why I ordered it since I've never knit a sock yet, and frankly I'm rather scared to try. :shock: But it was on sale! Isn't that reason enough?? :rofling:

Having SABLE several times over is a SOMETIMES preventative medicine to the illness of running out of yarn! :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

I certainly qualify for SABLE, but I did run out for a project last week. Of course, I ordered more than I could possibly need to finish. ;)

Why is it that no matter HOW much yarn you have in your stash, you still end up buying more? I picked up some Bernat Satin and some LB Fun Fur to make Lissa a cardigan yesterday on my way out of work! :rollseyes:

It's an illness, and I have a chronic case. I bought two big batches of yarn this week! I really don't need it, regardless of what anyone says or what I tell myself. It's just so satisfying. :rollseyes:
