YARN 9-1-1

Hey all!
So, I'm 2/3 of the way done with a lace shawl, and realize that I'm gonna need another skein. CRAP!

KnitPicks is out of stock of Stroll Tonal Fingering in Color-way "Thunderstorm" until mid-September. Is anyone by chance sitting on an extra skein? I'll be happy to pay whatever! Pretty Please? I'm dying to finish this project!

Thank you in advance!

Did you check the ravelry knitpick lovers group?
The ladies have just been discussing Thunderstorm and another shade...someone's bound to have an extra...

Dang. I feel for you. I always hate that dreas that sets in as you near the end of your yarn but not the project itself. Good luck on the quest

Congratulations. There's almost nothing so frustrating...I once lucked out and found the exact shade of purple I needed in a brand other than the original. All I could figure is that part of the dyelot was spun for a different contract. But I was sure frazzled until I found a match. And, as the usual law applies, I was nearly done with the project when I ran out. --Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I'd just been reading about Thunderstorm...so I thought there was hope...

Glad you found some - yay! The other place that I've had luck with is ebay. I once found the exact dye lot for some yarn I needed to finish up a piece on there.

Think less, enjoy it more.
