How will this story end...

So I am actually using the yarn called for in this Olive pattern. Laines Du Nord Dolly Maxi.
I have the required number of balls for the size I am knitting....and here I am...



One more inch to go before I cast off the arm hole area and start the sleeve cap. Not too much yarn left on the balls I am knitting...then that one single ball...

Will I have enough?

I hate this.

The remainder of the sweater (fronts, back and collar) are all blocking.

I am cleaning today...finally putting away all of the christmas stuff...dusting...Vacuuming...and wishing I was knitting.
I think it is time for a break.
Back to my "Boston-Legal-a-thon"...season two...disc two of seven....oh yeah! I really think the episode where they go fishing in BC Canada is by far my favourite...seriously...when they go into the Canadian courts in their "costumes"...I LOVE IT!

I hate the anxiety of wondering if I'm going to run out of yarn. Although, sometimes it makes it seem like I knit faster... maybe it's the anticipation of getting to go yarn shopping to hunt down that extra skein.

Is there any chance of getting more yarn, if you need it? I know that feeling - I usually knit faster, but I don't think that makes any difference to the knitting gods or is it godesses!?
Good luck!

I thought I was the only one putting away the Christmas things today! Reminds me, I think I need to vacuum again to get any extra needles that fell off that tree. then, perhaps a few rows of knitting before supper!

Girlfriend, you know I love you more than my luggage, but did you by any chance purchase an extra ball more than the pattern required? This is, of course, a classic example of "Do as I say, not as I do", 'cause I get pretty lazy in this arena as well.

Just wonderin', though.

Procuring the yarn shouldn't be a problem, though, what with the Internet and Knitlist, etc. Someone out there has a skein of the stuff. Here's to wishing you good success with your remaining ball!

You must get another subscriber, immediately! Bloglines tells me you have *66 subscribers. I replaced the first 6 with a 6! Bad luck numbers bring us stalkers out of lurkdom.

I hate that feeling! I have been lucky so far, but I know one of these days I wont' beat my knitting to the end and I'll run out of yarn.

What are you impressions of the yarn? It looks great, but how soft, sproingy, etc?

I love Boston Legal - such a hilarious show!
That BC trip is hilarious, I love the fishing scene. :)

I thought I was the only one doing a Jan. "Boston-Legal-knit-a-thon" :)

Think good thoughts as you finish up... surely there will be enough.
