Ignoring patterns and winging it is going splendidly as usual. Poor Planning. Check. Going over my yarn budget. Check. Something going wrong at the last possible second. Check. So, I’m right on schedule. The would-a should-a could-as have set in. I should have picked up an extra skein of yarn at the yarn store. I could have done the math and realized that if one sleeve had taken a skein and a half, chances are, so will the other one. But I didn’t.

It’s a good thing the yarn was reasonably priced, but regardless, that’s a ridiculous amount of yarn for one sweater.
