Denial

Too bad it's not quite "D is for...." week, because mine would be for Denial.

This is Honeybee, just 6 rows and a bind-off from being done.

Wad of Honeybee

This is how much yarn I had left.

Not enough

I knew that, thanks to my loose knitting, I was going to be cutting it close. But after the miracle of more yarn, I had faith that there would be enough.

Oh, well. I was apparently wrong. I've frogged back a little ways (thank god for lifelines!) and will be omitting one repeat of the Bee and Honeycomb section and a couple rows of the hem edging. And then all that's left is blocking this 8-foot long shawl!

Whoops... It sounds like it will be plenty long enough even without that repeat.

Oh man, so CLOSE!

And yikes to Dolly--that's got to be startling to sit on!

ARGH!!!!
I don't suppose it would be worth paging KnitSwap to see if anyone has a few dozen yards to spare????

It sounds like it'll be plenty big anyway..
but thanks for the life line reminder. Irtfa'a should probably get one soon

I believe that's what they call cutting it too close.

I hate having to frog back.
