You are not the only one who has made this error. I was making a quilt once and ran out of one fabric. Could not find it anywhere. So I set it aside... for 11 years! And, there it was again! In hind sight, that was silly. On the other hand, I now make sure I buy extra fabric.
I had bought enough wool to finish the project but hadn't realised a small amount to do something else/ That project was finished so I wasn't going to pull it apart. Have finished the redoing now so all is good.
I know exactly how you feel. I ran out of Layer Cakes (2 packs of 10 in squares) making my last quilt I showed. Because I didn't make it straight away, the shops were sold out except online maybe one piece here and there. Because of the pattern, I couldn't just order one color. I needed a little of each color. To order here and there would be shipping added into each order. I finally telephoned one site and because she had only 1/2 yard of some of the fabrics I needed she didn't list it online. I was so happy I could order all I needed from one site and one shipping.... Have you telephoned because maybe that's the case with your yarn.
Yes I did and have even contacted someone on E bay who were selling that same brand but they hadn't had any gray wool for that season. I just gave up and have almost redone all in another colour gray
I have girlfriends who are mad on quilting.
Oh! What a pain to have to undo and redo when you were so close to finishing. I'm glad you are not giving up. I love seeing your pictures of the finished animals.
I have undone all and have re crocheted all but about 12 Heptagons (6sides) but I will do them this evening.
Can you set the project aside and check again in 6 or 8 weeks for possible restocking? Or contact the manufacturer?
I came to the conclusion that I was not going to get any possibly when the new stock comes in next year so Have already started recrochetering the edge
