Crap! Math Error
I thought I had done the math so that I knew exactly how many skeins if yarn I need for the turtleneck sweater. I am now working on a sleeve and it's obvious I miscalculated by 1 skein of each color.

Guess I need to make a Hobby Lobby stop and pick up a few skeins.

I hate it when that happens! I must be a tight knitter b/c I was short a ball for my last project. I had picked up the yarn months ago and I was still able to get one last ball in the same dye lot.

Math error....
Happens to me all the time. Can't do maths in my head.

Example: What is 3*4? My answer.... 16

Ok, wow. And that's not the only example :D

Yeah, but in the case of knitting math errors at least you'll have MORE than you need? Look at it positively!
