I'm sorry but that sounds like a description of a thneed from from The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

(You can see an image with a description at www.cise.ufl.edu/~cjermain/thneed.htm )

Good luck with finding a solution to your short sleeve problem. It is no fun to run out of yarn before your UFO is done.

If the ravelry idea doesn't work out, try littleknits.com. I found some discontinued yarn in the same dyelot for a project I was working on. I had purchased the original yarn about 2 years before!
Good luck

Found it!
I was organizing my stash today reading my 'room' for a new kitten addition to our home, when low-and-behold I found 3/4 of a skein of this yarn!

What a happy day!

I'm glad you found the yarn! I have had really close calls and I'm actually working on a sweater right now that I'm a bit worried about. I bought more than I needed for the pattern, but it looks like it still might run out. Its a discontinued yarn so I am crossing my fingers for now.
