      Dear Jill,
      I purchased the "gradient " pattern at the plucky retreat in holland, Michigan.

      I purchased 1 skein of three colors to complete the 3 color chart.
      However , I have run out of the “gray”….

      Were you able to knit this using one skein only of each color?

      I’ve already bought a skein on line of “wintry mix” and the color is way off!

      I am the only knitter who needs more than 1 skein for the second color?!

      All the best,
