One of the things I am trying to do with these painted warps is to use up odds and sods of yarn in my stash. When I came to this warp I decided I'd use up a medium brown Bambu 12, positive that there would be sufficient to weave a scarf.
No such luck. :( I could see that I was going to run out about 2/3's of the way and started casting around for an option. Because a scarf 2/3's of it's intended length wasn't going to fit anyone but maybe a toddler. Not having any toddlers in my life I wanted to give a hand woven scarf to, I needed an alternative.
When the bobbin was almost empty I started weaving pick and pick with a yellow/green about the same value - a little lighter but close. When the brown ran out I carried on with the green.
