Knit Everything Fiber

HELP!

Okay Tumblr crafters, I need some brainstorming and ideas. I’m knitting a sweater and I’m done with the bodice and halfway through the sleeves (wrist to elbow). I am sure that I will run out of yarn before I finish. Seeing as I am using a maroon hand dyed yarn which I can’t easily get more of (Though I will try to). In the event I can’t get more, what should I do? Feather in a different color like black or dark gray? All suggestions welcome

what is a ‘swift’ ? :

A swift is a tool used to hold a hank of yarn while it is being wound off. It has an adjustable diameter so that it can hold hanks of many sizes, and rotates around a central rod.They are generally made out of wood or metal, however other materials may also be used. In the 18th and 19th centuries, swifts were sometimes made of whale ivory and they are now sought-after antiques. Swifts are not used very much in the textile industry, but are used more by knitters and crocheters who buy their yarn in hank form. The swift allows for easy balling, without the yarn getting tangled and knotted.”  ~wikipedia

similarly, & for the same purpose, to make sure the yarn or fiber doesn’t become tangled, are the ‘spinner’s weasel’ (shown above) & the ‘niddy noddy’ (shown above & in ‘madonna of the yarnwinder’) …
