The Green Gable fiasco continues...

Remember me? I am the bozo who knit the ENTIRE sweater in the wrong gauge and ended up with a miniature version. I frogged the whole thing, doubled up my yarn to get the correct gauge and thought I was home free. I had only used half of the yarn I had on the mini version so I thought everything was ducky. SURPRISE! I have done the entire sweater with the exception of the last three inches on the bottom and I have run out of yarn. Perhaps this project just wasn't meant to be! Here's my possible solution. I have a lot of other cotton yarns in some very nice colors and I am thinking of using one or more of them to finish the bottom, ending with the ribbing in my original purple. It could come out nice or it could be wicked ugly. The yarn is discontinued and unavailable anywhere I have looked (even on ebay) so this is my only option. I'll keep you posted.

What yarn are you using? I could keep my eyes out for you. I will be hitting a few yarn shops this week that I have never been to during my business travels.

Thanks SO much for your post. I am using a discontinued yarn called Lane Borgosesia Golfo. I bought it on ebay last fall and the seller did not have the labels. The color is basically an "eggplant" purple and comes closest to the color at this site:
