It looks nice, doesn’t it?  That’s 1.5 hours of knitting HUSH from The Rowan Calmer collection.

Suddenly this morning, it dawned on me.  Cabled projects take more yarn than “non cabled” projects.  This pattern calls for 10 balls of Calmer at 173 balls.  That’s 1730 yards.  Wow.  How much Naturewolle do I have?  12 balls.  At 100m per ball.  That’s 1200 meters or 1312 yards.

 I am an idiot.

    Aack! I hate that! Could you get more yarn? Or could you modify the pattern? Make it short sleeved? You’re cruising so well on it!
