If you have the budget I'd go ahead and buy 3 skeins even if the pattern only says 2. I say this because I just substituted a laceweight yarn for a pattern without a written gague and even though I bought enough yardage for the pattern, and knit on the size needle reccommended, I just realized that I don't have enough yarn to finish as I guess I'm knitting at a looser gague than the designer. Better safe than sorry and if you have an extra skien you can alwasys make something small with it.
Nothing is worth doing that isn't worth doing badly.
