NO. MORE. YARN.



See what I'm holding in my hand? Yup, that's the last of the Merino Style in Storm. Do you know how much more Merino Style in Storm I need to finish the neckline on my Deep V Argyle Vest? Yup, about four times that. I'm so upset about not being able to finish that I forgot to do my hair and put on a little lipgloss today...

Seriously though, I think my best option is to order more yarn. I have a whole 'nother ball of the Merino Style in Asparagus left, so I could do some sort of preppy striped neckline. However, if I'm going to do that, then I think need to redo the bottom ribbing to match and I just don't have the patience for that. Plus, I don't think that will actually look any good - Eunny's solid neckband is totally the way to go. Despite the fact that I ran out of yarn, I think this is just about the coolest thing that I've ever made. I can't wait to get it finished! So I think I'm just going to suck it up and do another Knitpicks order right away. If only I had figured this out before my big box of fair isle joy shipped...

Your sweater is beautiful and worthy of buying more yarn. I envy your talent in knitting. How do you like that yarn to work with?

Thank you Gina! I love the Merino Style - a lot of people had some trouble getting gauge for this project but I went up a needle size and it worked perfectly. I would definitely use it again.

Sue, if you haven't ordered it already I probably have a half skein or so of Merino Style in Storm languishing in stash. Let me know if you'd like it.
