I am happy to report that I was able to find another hank of the Plymouth Fantasy Naturale in Denim Twist. Same dye lot. Now, I can continue to finish my vest. BUT.
I have another problem. In my 5 hour knitting marathon yesterday, I forgot to knit the button holes on the front right piece. I didn't even notice it yesterday and I re-read the instructions when I started the front right. Yes, I had a slap myself silly episode while I was on my way back from the LYS today. Isn't it funny while I'm driving...the things I think about?
There is no way I'm frogging this last piece. I'll make a decision early tomorrow morning when my creative juices are flowing. I may end up sewing decorative buttons on both sides and wear the vest open. I need to keep moving forward with this garment. Any decorative additions can be added at the end.
Gosh darn, this is a sign that I need to move on to a different knitting project. A new garment.
My Malabrigo Noviembre Shrug is coming along fine. I tried it on and it fits much better. Going up a needle size was the best solution. I just joined my last cake of yarn and looking forward to seeing how this longer shrug will look on me.
