Icarus Shawl Progress, ran out of yarn

Today I’m going to Needler’s Nest to get some more Alpaca With a Twist, because I’ve run out! The yarn is 70% baby alpaca/ 30% silk, very very soft and nice. Now, the pattern says they used 90 grams from a 100-gram, 875-yard skein of Suri Elegance. The Alpaca With a Twist is the same, 100 grams and 875 yards. I still have 10 rows to go, plus 4 rows of edging and the bind-off. I must admit that I didn’t check the gauge (shame on me!), but that seems like too much of a discrepancy.  And $21 more than I planned to spend! The yarn kept slipping off my Addi Turbos, so I got some size 3 Addi Natura needles, and I love them. The Clover cable was driving me nuts because it’s so stiff. I may get rid of all my Clovers so I can afford more Naturas…
