A Neckwarmer means your scarf ran out of yarn

I just could not leave this alone. Last fall I knit a scarf for C-los, who surprised me and chose red yarn. I totally fell in love with the yarn and stole a skein for myself. (Carlos, your scarf is one foot short as a result.) I started knitting my own project with the "stolen" yarn and NOTHING has come out right in five different attempts. I finally settled on a pattern, the Lamar Scarf, only to run out of yarn- hence it's a "neckwarmer". I will never wear this as a neckwarmer. Last night, after work I went back to the store to get more yarn. There was no hope of getting the same dyelot. I'm only hoping that the color jog will blend at the back of the neck or get buried in the cable crosses.

I'm also feeling guilty about not finishing the barcode project. Maybe I'll finish it in time for the new Bellflur album.
