The Elusive Skein

So after my issues with wondering if the sweater will fit properly ... I almost thought I had run out of yarn.  I KNEW I had purchased plenty, but it was four years ago ... so.  The next thing was WHERE was it?  I thought it was in this bookcase, in the bottom with the other worsted or portions of a WIP yarn:

I looked, I pulled a bunch of things out and looked again.  I pulled more things out ... still not finding it.  I have a small ottoman that is empty in the center for storage, that's where I store my WIPs, so I tried there.  Nope.

I knew the yarn on the left was for a sweater, as well as the purple yarn ... the elusive skeins was stuck way up in the top next to the Ariosa ... it was HIDING!  I looked a few times and short of getting down on the floor (this is the bottom shelf), I finally stuck my hand WAY in the back and came up with this:

Oh - that happened to me with my French Braid cardigan! Took me forever to find the missing yarn!

Glad you'll be able to finish your sweater.

I once had 3 skeins of yarn. I finally decided what I wanted to make with my 3 skeins of yarn, but I could only find 2. For a week I repeatedly tore thru my nicely organized stash 'til I had a giant yarn mountain sitting in the middle of the bedroom. I never did find the yarn, but I did find a picture on my blog ... of a hat I had made and given away several months earlier.

I still have the other 2 skeins (I think?) - I'm glad your story turned out well.
