I'm in luck

Just a quick update on the slimline: I found the cashmerino astrakhan yarn in elusive dyelot 32!

There is a store in Oregon that had 1 skein left... and that's all I need to finish up the collar and sew together. Phew!

I think they must have sensed my desperation to get my hands on it because they shipped it out immediately and it arrived in my mailbox yesterday.

Expect to see FO shots soon....

Lucky you! I hate that feeling of running out just before you finish, ugh. That just confirms my theory to always buy an extra ball...but then I usually just end up with a whole extra ball at the end :)
