The devil named Ebay.

The only skeins of the yarn I need to finish the buttony sweater (Dazzleaire Mocha) were on eBay today. LP and I were watching like hawks to make sure I won. I had it until there were 7 seconds left, and then someone swooped in to outbid me. I can't believe it. Now I have to either a) connive to get the winning bidder to sell me the yarn or b) take out my sweater and make something smaller or c) wait, who knows how long, until some more of this discontinued yarn appears and then go through the crazy headache of eBay bidding again.

UPDATE: Does anyone know where to buy discontinued yarn? Any secret online yarn stores...? Please keep your eyes open for skeins of this yarn at thrift stores!!

or, D, make a crazy sweater with different colored sleeves! That's what I would so.
