Running out


You glance down as you’re crafting and realise that the end of the yarn is approaching …

There are still 3 very long rows plus a picot edging to do … and picot simply devours yarn …

You’re not sure if there will be enough to reach the end …

You only had one skein – and there isn’t any more available …

It’s a close call …

Miss the final 2 rows of the lace pattern and cast off early?

You decide to carry on …

Does your pace change? Do you find yourself speeding up? Slowing down? Keeping steady?

I know it doesn’t make sense, but I seem to knit faster … perhaps to try to get to the end of the row before the wool runs out? Who knows!

How about you? Do you notice any change of pace?

I’d love to know!

  1. I think I just tend to close my eyes and pray. Probably increased tension slightly too… in the hope that will eeek a little extra out of it!

    I think I would knit slower and keep looking to see how much yarn I have left 🙂
