This is the unfortunate reality that I came up against this evening.
I have run out of yarn, at least for the time being. I am tantalizingly close to being finished with this shawl -- only four "cactus" motifs left in the edging! -- but I'm afraid that it will have to wait a while yet until I get home to the spare yarn.
I typically waaay overpack yarn when I'm traveling, because running out of yarn is one of my least favorite things in the world. But this time I dashed out the door with a very conservative estimate of how much yarn I'd need to finish the project. I hate it when I miscalculate!
Anyways, I suppose I should look on the bright side. The shawl is turning out just as I'd imagined. And now I have something to look forward to in Phoenix (not usually the case during the summer)!
