I solved my yarn problem in the simplest way possible. The pattern calls for five lace repeats before the bottom ribbing startes. I did four instead, since I was planning on making the whole thing shorter anyway. What a foxy little knit this is. I should finish it this evening with no problems.
Today I got some Cascade 220 for the Back-to-School Vest, also from Fitted Knits. Man, I think I need an intervention. This is my third project from the book.
