But all was not lost, I went to Ravelry, my one stop virtual knit network. I stalked others who had also used the aubergine/silver Blue Heron metallic rayon yarn for projects. I targeted people who had finished projects made with my beloved yarn. I sent out the call of distress, begging for their leftover yarn. I only needed about 2 oz. of the yarn and hoped for help. Out of about a dozen emails, four wonderful knitters replied. Aggie from Brooklyn was my knit hero extraordinary. She sent me the perfect amount of yarn. She refused to accept my offer to pay and even sprung for the postage. I am not worthy, but my now finished Clapotis is.
I also found where I went wrong, I had put in one too many increases and one too many length repeats, major opps. However, all those sins are in the past. My beautiful Queen of Night Clapotis is done and it is love, much love.
