Since last time, when I realized I would need to buy ~5.75 ounces (~163 grams) of yarn to finish my Palindrome Scarf, I have acquired more yarn and changed needles.
I went to the to the LYS to find a complimentary color of the same yarn, but they no longer carried it. :-( So off to Ravelry.... but was not successful in finding anyone state-side willing to de-stash. :-( So off to the Bella Yarns website in Rhode Island, who as far as I can tell is the only source for Lang Yak in the US. :-)
The yarn is milled in Switzerland and my original stash came from a trip Hubba took to Japan a few years ago. So I'm happy to now have enough yarn to finish this project.
Also a comment from ChrisKnits helped me realize that I was using bamboo needles, which are not my favorite and that I most likely had metal ones in the same size. I added a life line so I would know where the needle change happened and made the switch.
The Yak+Merino yarn is a bit sticky coupled with the bamboo needles which are also sticky and while the cable is a little short on my circs, I am happier with the metal needles on this project.
At 20.5 inches long, I only have 39.5 inches to go. ;-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
