…about halfway into the last repeat of the “body” lace section, I noticed that the ball of yarn was really starting to shrink. and by the time I started the border lace section I was officially worried about running out of yarn. (I even spent a few minutes on ravelry yesterday morning looking for patterns I could knit with nearly a full ball of the ruca, if I did indeed have to bite the bullet and buy a 3rd skein…and I did find a great pattern!) so out came the scale. and I weighed the remaining yarn at the end of every row. the border lace is 19 rows plus the bind-off. after row 1, I had 61 grams left and row 2 used another 3 – I figured at that rate, I’d probably need another skein by row 14 or so. but somehow, a miracle occurred. and I had a very small ball (which sara said was actually pretty big and why was I so worried?) – 13 grams – left over.
