Uh Oh!

This is not good. I am almost out of yarn! Take a look at my sleeves:

Do you think I will make it? I'm about 2 inches away from the sleeve cap, but I am not sure. If I don't have enough I will have to order an additional skein of this Colinette Shimmer Fresco. I rechecked my gauge to see if that is what is sucking up the yarn, but it seems right. I don't know what is happening. The small size is supposed to take 8 skeins and I had 10. Grr. I even rechecked the yardage, and it is right. Oh well. I should know if I need another skein by this evening.

On the bright side, I finally received my yarn for the first of my ponchos. This is my daughter's poncho yarn. I love the vibrant colors and the fuzzy finish.

I went with Lion Brand since it is a poncho for a 2 year old--I need to wash it. I forgot to look to see if the fuzzy stuff washes. When I received it, I noticed that the fuzzy fur needs to be handwashed. Grr. Again, that sort of defeats the purpose. This needs to be easy to care for because my daughter will surely drag this through the mud often.

But, as soon as I finish (or run out of yarn) my Colinette sweater I'm going to cast on this poncho. I need to get going as I have my own poncho and a secret X-mas gift for my Mom to work on.
