Okay, I may be overreacting, but I am freaking out!
For the last two weeks, I have been knitting away at my first EZ Tomten. I am doing it in KP Sierra, main color Lettuce, contrast color Pool. Based on what EZ says about yarn needs, I should’ve only needed 4 hanks total (I estimated 3 of the lettuce, 1 of the pool). Then I was going to do the opposite for the 2nd Tomten, for my other son. I am nearly done with the first tomten, needing only to finish one arm and do the other. It is turning out much bigger than expected, which could explain why it is eating yarn. At this point, I have used nearly 7 hanks and may run out of the Lettuce before I’m done. Right now all I have left is 2.5 hanks of the Pool and still a whole other tomten to knit (in addition to finishing the one I’m currently doing).
So I go to the KP website this morning to order several more hanks - only to discover that neither of these two colors is even listed any more and the yarn is on clearance!!! Like I said, I am FREAKING OUT. What do I do? Scrap the whole project? Frog and try to make it smaller so it doesn’t take so much yarn? Put out a call to buy anyone’s Sierra?
I have emailed KP to see if they happen to have any more that’s not listed (I just reordered this yarn in these colors last week!). I love this yarn and I’m so bummed out about this. :pout: I’ve been planning these little jackets for awhile now. I’ve never run out of yarn before b/c I always make sure to buy enough, but in this case EZ’s suggestions are so unspecific that I screwed up.
Mostly I guess I need y’all to commiserate with me. :pout:
