Well. Here's my progress up to the last four rows of the last chart:


And here's another picture of the yarn that's left:



What's that you say? Why yes. Uh-huh. That's an end. The end. Gaaaaaaaah!

Either I'm a very loose knitter, or the alpaca cloud didn't actually have as much yardage as it was supposed to. I don't know which. So, of course Icarus has spent the last week in time out, ever since I ran out last Saturday. In the meantime, I finished Sivia Harding's Angel Pearls Scarf. It made me feel a *little* bit better. Enough so that I actually photographed Icarus. So, now I need to find some Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud, Sunlight color, dyelot 9356. Grrr. Does anyone just happen to have some lying around that they would barter or sell? Pretty pleeeeeeeease?

Meanwhile, Lisa Souza is sending me some of her amazing alpaca laceweight yarn in the sea glass colorway. I can't wait! It' s making me happy. :) Otherwise I'd be *seriously* sulking....

Oh, pain! Oh, horror! Have you tried contacting KnitPicks directly? They're really nice over there; it's run by real people and everything. They may be able to dig up that dyelot for you....Or if you got the same color in a different dyelot, you could rip back to some logical place, and let the edging just be a slightly different tone, as if you did it on purpose!

This isn't the first time I've heard of KnitPicks' yarns being short yardage. But I guess it's the risk we take when we substitute yarns. Damn. I hope you find another skein!

I know I have some leftover KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud in Sunlight at home. I'll check to see if it's that dyelot. If so, you may have it if you still need it.

I checked my leftover Sunlight, and it's dyelot 7551. Sorry I couldn't help you out.
