Dang! I Ran Out of Yarn...

Crochet Bolero Out of Yarn

I kept my fingers crossed, hoping that I would have enough... But, my worst fear happened, I ran out of yarn... Rowan is a popular brand, many yarn shops carry the lines. However, 4-ply cotton doesn't seem to be very popular. Out of a handful of LYS's in the area, there is only one that carries 4-ply cotton. I bought two balls from them, thinking that it would be enough. I remember that was still one ball left on the shelves. That was one week ago. When I went back there this week, that ball was gone! What are the odds that someone also wanted to buy the same yarn in the same color in the same week when the yarns have been sitting on the shelves for months, and especially there is only one ball left? Aaarrrggghhhh!!! I made calls to several LYS's this morning, none of them carries this yarn... sigh... I guess I'll just have to put this project aside until I find more yarn. Dang! I was hoping to wear it this weekend, I heard it may hit 80 degrees on Saturday.

鈎的時候就很擔心呢, 很怕線會不夠. 沒想到一開始的方眼編會用掉這麼多線. 果然, 圖二的模樣編只剩下最後一排還沒鈎完, 線就沒了. Rowan的線幾乎每家店都有賣, 可是他的4-ply cotton方圓百里內據我所知只有一家在賣. 一星期前就是跟他買的, 買了兩球, 看架子上還剩一球. 心想如果不夠再回來應該還可以吧. 結果, 就是有這麼巧的事, 這個禮拜再回去, 剩下的那一球賣掉了啦!! 今天早上打電話問了附近幾家店, 真的沒人有... 唉... 看來只好暫時把它收起來, 等買到線再繼續了. 本來想趕快鈎好這個週末可以穿的, 氣溫上升聽說會有80度(華氏)呢!

Ooooh! What pattern is this? Looks cute...I was just going thru my stash couple days ago, I still have lots 4-ply cotton, too bad, non of them are white.... :-(
Sorry, can't help you. Doesn't Yarnmarket carry 4-ply cotton?

真可惜~看來要等上一陣子才能完成了~
你用的線很省耶~我用了4顆蘇菲亞棉線(50g/125m), 看來你只用3顆就可以完成了~
這件外套今年又出了一組小改款, 七分袖的. 我現在正在做這件, 這個weekend 應該就可以完成了吧!

Tcknit:
這個圖是跟瑪格要的, 粉受歡迎的, 多在網友家逛逛, 妳會看到很多版本哦!
我是想如果這邊店裡買的到是最好, 要不然一顆$6.50的線, 實在不太想付運費… 為了這一顆, 再敗別的線回來… (雖然是很想…) 會覺得guilty耶…. 可是那個怪怪的老闆娘(妳知道我說的是誰), 也不知道她什麼時候會再進貨…

瑪格,
謝謝妳的織圖喔! 歹勢啦! 這件暫時沒辦法完成了.
這組線真的很省, 一顆50g有170m, 所以才好膽大地買兩顆就回家開工了, 其實只要再半顆我想就夠了…
等看妳的七分袖版喔!

Jen da Purse Ho:
The yarn is Rowan 4-ply cotton. It’s not hard to find on the Internet, just for whatever reasons, most of the local stores don’t carry it. I just don’t feel like paying shipping for one ball of yarn, you know… Thank you for your offer. I think I will check out those stores outside of my immediate area to see if any of them have it before I try to order online.

Wow, what a beautiful shrug! I hope you are able to find another ball of yarn to finish it. Which book did this pattern come from? Love the green scarf, too.

Cafe Knitter said...

Hi Judy:
Thank you! This shrug is from a Japanese pattern book, which is currently out of stock. I got it from Margaret. I haven't found the yarn to continue this one yet, but I am thinking about starting another using different yarn. Hopefully I'll get to it in the next few weeks!

Andrea said...

Too cute! You did a beautiful job. I am going to Seoul in a few days...I'll check at myknit.com for the pattern book.

You have been tagged. Details on my blog :)

Cafe Knitter said...

Hi Andrea,
Thank you! Hope you find the book or get a chance to browse.

And, see my newest post... :)

我最近也買了rowan 4ply cotton,我是買純白的,這牌子的毛線不便宜ㄟ!!! 我是在網路上買了之後,才發現Ebay有便宜的賣家~

後來你的線買到了嗎??

Ashley:
Rowan的線真的是很貴, 不過我還是很喜歡, 每次都趁打折時多買一些. 線後來還是沒買到, 我想算了, 大概會把它拆了吧.
