As I was working to the end of Haruni I was sweating. I had decided to add another set of repeats, knowing that I had three skeins of my yarn which was more than was called for. The designer mentioned in her notes that you need about half your yarn to knit the edging pattern, and I figured that was about how much I had. By the time I got to the bind off row, I was only 50% certain that I’d make it through. This is how much yarn I had left to do a crochet fancy bind off:
I couldn’t stop, I madly worked on it Tuesday evening – if I needed more yarn I needed to know asap! I did the crochet with a 2.5mm and only chained 5 stitches in between, instead of 6. I think if I hadn’t done that, I wouldn’t have made it. But I did, with about 1.5 metres of yarn to spare!
Now it is blocking, and I will be able to wrap it up in time for Saturday (I will try to get photos before then). Phew!
