When Will I Learn?


Above, the before picture.

Below, the after.



This isn't the natural order of things, but it's been that kind of day.

I ran out of this Kureyon about two-thirds of the way through this scarf, which wasn't even very fun to knit. Said scarf then sat in a drawer for six months next to finished objects, where I'm sure it was teased mercilessly. Yarn can be cruel.

Now look at this:



I ran out of Kersti 7 rows too soon - can you believe that? This is the purly bump side of the Falling Leaves shawl from Lavish Lace. It will block flat in a diamond pattern, just as soon as I get more Koigu.

Oh, poor, poor you, I can *so* feel what you're going through! Right now I'm battling with not having enough yarn for the cardi I'm doing, and it drives me totally insane - argh! I agree, the scarf was so pretty - but hey, if it's going to be a fake isle soon, then it's going to be even more awesome!
