Well this sucks

Remember those "City Gauntlets" I started last week - well I got busy finishing them but guess what?

Yup, that's right - I ran out of yarn.


The instructions say 1 skein. I followed the pattern. I usually get gauge (although there is gauge, I don't think I've done anything too wonky). I'm about 2 inches too short - that's a lot - see?

So now I have to wait until I can get back to that store to buy another skein. No, I'm not going to rip them out and re-work them. I figure that the dye lot doesn't matter so much with this  mixed-n-matched yarn and so I'll buy another skein and then make a baby hat or two with the left overs. Maybe I can recoup some of my losses.

It still sucks though.
