Ain't that always the way?

So, I was looking at the amount of yarn I have left for the sweater for my brother. And I was comparing it to how much yarn I've used. Bad things ensued. Basically, I realized that I'm more than likely going to run out of yarn, and there's really nothing I can do. I thought to myself, it'll be fine, I'll just order more. So I hopped onto the KnitPicks website to order more.

The Knit Picks Swish Superwash yarn in the Deep Ocean colorway I'm using won't be available until after 1/17/2007.

I'm getting nervous.

Edited to add: Since I more than likely have enough yarn to do the second sleeve but probably not the front, I think My tactic is going to be to do the sleeves in the same dye lot and then get more yarn for the front if I need it.

Hey, that's great! It gives you an unbreakable stay of execution. Nothing you can do will possibly finish this by Christmas, without the yarn, there will be no sweater. It's simple physics -- matter cannot be created nor destroyed.

Sorry you are running short of yarn. Your brother is sure to understand though - it's certainly out of your control isn't it?

What a bummer! :( I hope you get a close enough color that will match the rest of his sweater. Have a great New Years! :)

Your brother's sweater is looking beautiful!! Hope you get the additional yarn soon so you can finish it. I look forward to the photo of the finished product.
