The other day I (think) I blogged about running out of yarn for my roommate’s Harry Potter scarf. Well, I went online and found out that there was only one store that had the color I was looking for and they were going to charge me a total of $13 and change for one skein! One skein that I wouldn’t even be using all of mind you! So I went to my LYS and asked if they had the yarn I was looking for. The answer was that they did not, and apparently the company has discontinued the yarn I was using. I was disapointed but not going to give up so easily. So I started looking on their wall of worsted weight yarn when I spotted some forest green yarn by Ella Rae that looked very similar so I decied “what the heck” and bought it. I brought it home and wouldn’t you know it? The yarn was an exact match. So I finished my Harry Potter scarf and it is blocking in my closet.
On another random note, the new Summer Knitty is out and I wish against all odds that I could win this contest.
