I finished a sleeve of my mom's sweater - have the right front and one more sleeve to go (finished the back and left front and one arm)and 5 balls of yarn left - (they had 15 and it called for 15) - I'm praying hard that I have enough of this color - there is no more of this dye lot; I bought all they had and it's the PERFECT "mom" color - I know that I can knit a row with the exact color, change yarn and purl back with the same color (different dye lot) when doing SS - has anyone done this before? I'm worried that it might show up - I am thinking that even though I might have enough yarn I may do this with the other sleeve - just to try as a little insurance policy - I'll do the right front first (all with good yarn) and then I'll do the last arm in this technique and pray a lot that it works -
does anyone have any suggestions on how to make yarn go further if you think you might be running out? (besides making sure there's extra yarn?) haha
thanks for everyone's input and comments - it definately helps!
