so close - but close doesn't count!

I am on row 147 of 154 rows - in fact, over half done with row 147...

and I just ran out of yarn from the skein I was using.

DRAT! Now I have to wind 850 yards of laceweight to finish the shawl.

It's my shawl and I'll complain if I want to - complain if I want to;

there's a song in there somewhere....

As someone else pointed out, it can also be irritating to run out of yarn when you only have four stitches to go...that happened to me three days ago...Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!
