Seriously, you guys.....

Aaaand that's the end of the yarn. That I purchased in New Zealand. Made by a company in New Zealand. Over a year ago. With a couple inches of sleeve to go.

This was my reaction:*

*Please do not watch if you're offended by cursing. But let's be honest, if you're offended by cursing, you probably don't read my blog. Completely safe for work, unless you like, work in a church or something (Hi, Dad!).

Thoughts? Keep in mind, to harvest yarn from the hems (or to change the hems at all) I have to undo all of the Kitchener. Thereby making me it's bitchener, instead of vice versa. My strategy was to keep knitting faster, as if that would somehow extend the length of the yarn. Didn't work.


  1. On it's own the video is not that funny to me. Coupled with the mental picture of a knitter coming to the end of the yarn with bits still left to knit, it's hilarious. I do not revel in your pain, though. I ache for you. And I hate even more that I have no help to offer. :-( Make it a vest?

  2. Sorry about your yarn dilemma, but thank you so much for sharing that clip. Hilarious!

  3. I'm thinking maybe I'll Frankenstein the yarn from the finished sleeve onto this sleeve and however long they are, that's how long they're gonna be. I'll say it was a 'slightly too short sleeve' design?

  4. I have a cousin in NZ, email me what the yarn is etc maybe she can get it for you ? :-)

  5. Yes, I feel your pain too! Three quarter sleeves maybe?

  6. Oh no! What are you gonna do? Shorter sleeves?
