Progress report on WLD Madeline Shawl Jacket

I've been knitting all day today on Madeline. The knitted-on border just seemed never-ending but at last I finished it. However, my happiness soon turned sour when I realised that I have just 33 grams of yarn left. That gives me 16 grams per sleeve. Looking at these tiny little balls of yarn, I really don't think I'm going to have enough left to finish my jacket. :0(

I've e-mailed the designer in the hope that she can either (a) say yes, 33 grams will be enough or (b) mail me some more yarn in order to finish this. I was hoping to get it finished in time to wear out next weekend, but that's looking less likely as time goes on.

Anyway, I'll keep on knitting the sleeves until I run out of yarn and I'll keep you posted on what happens .....
