I know I said that I was only going to knit and crochet using yarn from the stash. I even took photos of said stash to remind myself of just how much yarn I own.
As you know, I started my latest afghan project with yarn that I picked out of the stash. Now I’m three skeins into it with three skeins left, and I realized that I have A Predicament.
The length is perfectly appropriate for an adult-sized afghan, but as you can see from the photo, three skeins of yarn do not produce enough width to cover a lap. Three more skeins would add roughly double the width, but it still wouldn’t be wide enough to suit my taste. So I had two choices: Unravel the thing and start over with different dimensions, or buy more yarn.
I think you already know that I went with the second option.
Luckily, I was able to find more skeins of this particular colorway on eBay. Now I can only hope that the dye lots will match, or at least come close.
