Solutions and More Problems
You can't even tell that I'm using two different balls of yarn! She wasn't sure of the dye lot, but through the magic of Ravelry I discovered that we had bought our yarn from the same source and asked if she had any leftovers. She sent me nearly a full ball (for free!) and I think that it's a winner! Now it's just a matter of ripping out the sweater to fix the issue.
In other yarn shortage news, I'm pretty sure that I will not have enough Svale to finish Cherry. Well, that is what happens when you buy yarn without a project in mind and then hope that you have enough. I'll have to call the yarn store and see if they still have some in the same dye lot--I don't want to try to hunt this yarn down too!
I haven't mentioned this yet, but my husband got a job in Chicago for the summer so I've been a bit lonely lately. It's only been a few weeks, and we have several weekend trips planned to see each other, but it still sucks. I've been in a bit of a mopey mood this weekend. I do have a fun new haircut to cheer me up though:
Short hair is definitely good for the summer!
