I bought this yarn at a farmstand in Vermont, on my way back from an agility trial.  What I have, is what I have … so I was excited when I calculated yardage, and found I had enough to make a Juneberry — a pattern I’ve had queued for a while now.

You can, therefore, appreciate the depths of my horror when I realized (as I began working the edging) that I had nowhere NEAR enough yarn to finish the pattern as written.  I modified, measured, knit, ripped, and repeated until I had an edging that preserved some flavor of the original, but used the right amount of yarn.  Even so, I finished on fumes — the tiny ball below is all I had left!  Phew.

I’m satisfied with my modded edging … I had to loose the big lacy holes, but I’m ok with my faggoted substitution.  I was able to keep the bobbled swoops, and lost 1 of the 3 lace holes along the outside edge.

I really enjoyed this knit, and will likely make it again, this time with enough yarn on hand to complete the full edging! It’s fun to knit lace with worsted-weight yarn — over and done very quickly.
