Best Laid Plans Gone Awry

In my last post I talked about my new cast on, Rhapsody Cables by Joji Locatelli, using my beautiful stash of Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in the color Translation.  I love this pattern but after re-calculating the yardage needed I found out I would be short two skeins of yarn.  How I managed not to see this at the beginning is beyond me other than the pure excitement of casting on such a beautiful design.  I will knit this design, just not at this time.


I have casted on Irish Coffee by Thea Colman (aka Babycocktails).  I have just the right about of yardage for this project and I have wanted to knit this sweater since Thea published it.

I truly believe this color of yarn will compliment this design nicely and so far I'm loving how it is looking!  I've been reading several Ravelry project pages with slight modifications and tips. I haven't quite decided how deep my "v" will be in the front but since I'm large busted, it might be a bit deeper so it looks more proportioned.

Has this ever happened to you ... start a project or consider a project only to find out you really don't have enough yarn in your stash to complete it?

Until next time ~ Be Creative!
