So... with three and a half rows and the bind off left, I ran out of yarn. For those that are curious - 650 yards is NOT enough, even if you cut out one repeat, to knit this shawl. It may be possible on a 2 instead of a 3 needle, but I doubt it. (And your shawl would not be lacy.) I love it, but now.. I must wait. Wait for Wendy to finish her shawl (haha! I'll be waiting what? one day? two days?) and hope she has enough Alchemy left (and is still willing to part with it) so that I can finish mine. Because I will RIP THE WHOLE THING OUT before I order $27 worth of yarn (including shipping) for THREE FREAKIN' ROWS. (BTW, I know I should have known. But the insult still stings.)

Could you use a crochet bind off or would that ruin the effect?

nah, I want to finish it the "normal" way.

I would be so impatient that I'd have gone out & bought the extra yarn by now. I hope Wendy has enough leftover for you.
