The End is Near...

... And I am almost out of yarn.  It's true.  The Girly Girl Cashmere Shrug I shared last week is almost complete but I have run out of yarn with just three rows left of the second sleeve.  There's not a whole lot that makes you want to abandon a project so quickly as a road block like this.

I knew going in to the project that I would have to make some adjustments due to the lack of yarn.  I had exactly one ounce of fingering (ish) weight yarn that was purchased over a year ago at a thrift store. Since yardage was lacking, I always figured a baby shrug would be the perfect project for such a small amount of yarn.  I decided on the Pearl Shrug pattern from Vintage Baby Knits by Kristen Rengren and set to work.  The smallest size is 3-6 months and figured my shrug would be a little smaller since my yarn was so thin.  Wrong.  What I thought would fit Elise now will definitely be something to grow in to.

This makes me wish I would've gone down a few needle sizes to make it a bit smaller and in turn use a little less yarn.  All I have left is the last part of the second sleeve:

 Basically I am going to have to take apart then edging around the body of the shrug and shorten it a bit to get the yarn I need to finish the sleeve.  *sigh*  See what I mean?  Makes you just want to throw in the towel.  In the meantime, I have started a few other small rojects.  This is not like me.  I am usually a one (or maybe  two) project-at-a-time kinda girl.  What worries me is that if I don't trudge forward I will abandon the shrug forever.  I guess it wouldn't be worth it to leave it behind now- I'm so close!  The problem is, the edging has so many live stitches, it might take a while to get things back on the needles alone.  Advice?  Tips?
