Chicka Chicka Boom Boom...*

...will there be enough yarn?

That's what I've been wondering as I knit this.

It's Baby Bobbi Bear, and I'm following the pattern specs exactly. I ordered three skeins of the Blue Sky Alpaca (color #73, tarnished gold) and I'm knitting with two strands on US 9 needles. I'm beginning to wonder, however, if this bear will have only one arm...or perhaps be ear-less. Yikes! I actually finished the head last night after snapping this shot, and I'm even more nervous now than before.

At this point, I'll soldier on and see how things go. I may have to place another order with Purl if things go badly.

Be strong, Leslie. When I use Lamb's Pride, I seriously have 10 feet of yarn left. But those little ears don't take much at all. Good luck!

That is such a great color! Good luck with getting it done with the yarn you have.

I love that pattern, I hope you have enough yarn. It's always such a bummer to have to order more and then wait fot it to arrive in order to finish.
