Todays "Forecast"...cold, windy and a little yarn shortage.

You knew it would have to happen. This is turning out to be my favourite knit ever...fits so perfectly and now this.
Tell me what is wrong with this picture...



About 5" of the sleeve to go...then I also have to knit the button bands. Yes...that is all the yarn I have left.
I don't even know how many balls I started with or how many I have used. I have searched the stash...the scraps...the 1/2 balls...no more left. I think I started with 11 balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed Aran. I know I bought it at my LYS last year...maybe...just maybe they have some left.

there's a website where you can search for yarn by brand and dye lot. Yarn dex? I can't remember. Good luck finding another ball. It's a gorgeous sweater.

Oh no! I hope you find the yarn you need.

Ouch. Good luck finding the yarn.

oh no, I hope you can find more yarn! Maybe a different dye lot could work for the button bands (if its not too different). good luck!

turn it into a vest and leg warmers or slippers.
You go girl get those scissors out... even if you find the yarn it will never match, never.

Blame it on the bobbles - they eat yarn! Good luck finding more - this has happened to me twice in the past six months I keep luckin' out and finding more - in my dye lot no less! I'll try to send some of my luck your way!

good luck finding the yarn!

I just recently ordered some of that Jo Sharp (which is now Kathmandu) from FuzzyMabel and they seemed to have a lot of colors. You could check dyelot with them maybe.
