Searching for Sock Yarn!

Remember the sock that is 'budding' at the top of my Stash Flash picture? I decided that I would make a really good effort to get the second one finished, so I've been busily knitting on it, on and off, all day. However, I have run into a bit of a problem. I am 30 rows away from finishing the mate and I have run out of yarn!

The yarn is Lana Grossa Meilenweit Mega Boots Stretch, and the colorway is #705. The yarn has a dark olive green base, twisted with the dull red, yellow and orange that create the gradual stripes (it kind of looks like a slow burn). My dye lot is #9159, but at this point I'm not really concerned with exact dye lot if I can at least get close.

I don't need a full skein. But if anyone out there has made socks with this yarn and ended up with yarn left over that you'd would be willing to pass along, please let me know.

I know I could do the toes in a different color, but I'd really rather avoid that if I can. I have already determined that any socks I knit for Richard in the future will be done toe-up, to avoid this problem (I never run out of yarn when making socks for me, but of course, I have smaller feet). Sigh. But right now, that doesn't help me much.

Darn, I don't have that yarn, so I'm no help there, but I'll send out pleading vibes on your behalf. That sucks.

Did you try Ebay?
