ran out of yarn

So I have another knitting-related failure. This is an afghan I was making for my daughter where I ran out of yarn.  Specifically the black confetti yarn.  I was using my Ultimate Knitting Machine (cheating, I know), cruising right along, and then discovered I was completely out of the black.  As it is, it’s too narrow to be an afghan.  It’s too long to be a baby afghan.  It’s just long and awkward.  I need ideas of how to fix this. I tried to replenish the yarn for MONTHS.  No longer stocked.  I tried ebay, and even thought I hit pay dirt when I won an auction on the exact brand black confetti yarn.  Turns out that was all green sparkly threads running through the black. Pretty but not what I needed.  So.  Long story short, I could use just black for the remaining squares, all pink strips down the sides, leave it the way it is and just have it be like an end of the bed cover or something like that.  I just don’t know.

Have a look and give me your ideas. I’m open to anything.  I do have plenty of pink to finish.  And I now have plenty of plain black and sparkly black.

Thoughts?

Save me!
