Calling All Knitters - Yarn Shortage Emergency!!!

I am trying to finish this shawl but I'm short at least a skein, although I'd love to get two if possible. It is Artful Yarns Fable in colour Three Little Pigs #98 dye lot 1906. If you have some in your stash I'd love to buy it from you as this yarn is discontinued. Or, suggestions on how to finish....couild another colour be added for the bottom portion? It cannot be wool as the recipient is allergic. The yarn is a mix of pink, yellow and a hint of green. I have enough left that I could blend in another colour, perhaps off white???

The current yarn is a blend of 85% Pima Cotton and 15% silk. Possible to put mercerized cotton or some Poima Cotton in Ivory or cream after?

This is a gift so io want to make it as beautiful as I can.

Any ideas of how to finish would be greatly appreciated!!!! ~Hugs~

  2. If you can't find the same yarn, if it were me I would add a band of a complementary color, and finish up with a border or fringe of the main color. I think it's worth a try. I wish I had some the yarn you need in my stash, but unfortunately I don't. I'll keep my fingers crossed for luck :)

    happy knitting :)
