Over at PDG, there are as many craft disasters as anywhere else. Here’s one. I am finally almost through the gusset shaping on this Christmas stocking. I’ve run out of yarn. I can either a) finish the toe in the putty colored yarn I used for the lace b) try for more of the same yarn and hope the dyelots aren’t too off or c) scrap the whole thing.
I LOVE this stocking – I think it’s beautiful and for the most part, my knitting on it is excellent. So I am going to try option B, and find more yarn. If the dyelots are really off, I will rip back to where the gusset began, and hope that the change in stitch pattern will be enough to camouflages the problem.
So now I’ve confessed… your turn! Anyone else have crafty disasters sitting on the closet floor that you don’t know what to do with?
