When I first cast on for this scarf/shawlette, I was a little worried about how much yarn I had - would it be enough? The skein of Marks and Katten Fame Trend says it contains ca 420 meters, which sounds like plenty in the face of the 330-425 m that the original pattern calls for. But I was pretty sure I was going to want it longer, with more triangles.
Ah, I thought. If that turns out to be the case, I'll just frog and reknit with fewer stitches, which would make it end up narrower and longer. No problem.
But then, this:
The color transitions are happening perfectly... It's as if the yarn was made for the pattern. There'll be no frogging here - whatever I get, I get.
Now why is it that, even when a plan is working perfectly, it still bites me on the ass?
