I've just spent the past 4 weeks working on the Circular Cardigan from Debbie Bliss' "Out of Town" pattern book. Basically each round eventually came to 540 stitches. I get to the last sleeve with the last 4"s to go + border and guess what? I run out of yarn. Go to my local shop and of course they don't have the color. Plus, they said the chances of me getting the same die lot are next to nill.
Yarn is Dark Horse Fantasy #108 die lot 2219.
But I guess it's my fault for having abadoned the project in March 2008. It kept screaming at me every time I walked past it, so I finally picked it up and starting knitting furiously to finish it.
What a bummer! Has this ever happened to you? If so, what did you do about it?
