As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm running out of yarn for my Inca Marl Coat. The ruffle isn't long enough and I have one measly skein left (even though I bought the recommended amount it won't be enough).
So, based on a story Jennifer told me a while back about running out of yarn and using Ravelry to search other people's stashes...I went on Ravelry and found 3-4 people with the same yarn colorway and dyelot as I'm using (heck they even bought it at Webs like I did).
After sending messages to several people, I found Lynn (Rav link) who had 2 skeins leftover from a project. In fact, she acquired these 2 skeins in the same way I went about it. She suggested that instead of the "Traveling Pants" these become the "Traveling Skeins".
I marvel at how Ravelry has changed how we can search and work and knit. I marvel at the kindness of fellow Ravelers who reach out and help each other. Thank you, Ravelry and thank you, Lynn!
