Baby Got Back

So, last night, I actually sat in front of the tv watching Star Trek TNG, and I knit. I finished the back of Sonnet and began to do the area under the arm. And once again, as I finished the ball, I wondered if I will have enough to finish the sweater. Am I the only knitter who’s ever thought home insurance ought to include some provision for running out of yarn before you get the sleeves finished? Sigh.

Lacking home contents insurance with that provision though, I will just press on, and hope for the best. And also that short sleeves will look okay on this sweater. I’m on the 6th ball now, and it’s looking doubtful that I will have more than one ball left for each sleeve. That’s the downfall of using a multi-gauge pattern I guess: there’s just no way to be sure except to knit it. But the next time I get a contents insurance quote, I’ll ask. In the meantime, if you have some red svale dye lot 6504 in your stash, can you leave me a comment?
