I’m working on a baby blanket. I have three skeins of really nice baby yarn and one skein of cheap Red Heart camo. The camo yarn is scratchy and rough but I really wanted camo in the blanket and I could only find it in cheap yarn. It’s fairly spread out and surrounded by delightfully soft baby yarn. I’ve been trying to finish up this blanket and my basket project so I’m down to only two works in progress.
I was relaxing, watching The League on Netflix and crocheting away. And then the unthinkable happened…I ran out of the cheap camo yarn with only two rows to go!! Grrrr. It was10:45pm and I started debating whether or not it was worth running to Walmart. I decided getting out of pjs and putting on real clothes just wasn’t worth it. I just switched projects.
As I was working the border I ran out of the lovely rose colored yarn with only 1/4 of the border left to go! Good grief. Clearly I’m not a good judge of the amount of yarn a project needs.
How does one learn that skill??
