I'm currently working on the New York Cardigan (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Suze/new-york-cardigan). I had ordered 7 skeins of DK weight yarn intending to make a sweater out of it, but didn't have a pattern picked out for it. Now I'm running out of yarn! :( I had decided I liked the look of a tighter knit, so made it on size 6 needles instead of the size 9 the pattern called for. Now I'm regretting that decision because a larger needle would make the yarn go a little further. Is it totally crazy that I'm debating reworking an entire sweater so I can avoid ordering more yarn? Gah! I'm not even sure if it would be enough to make the difference I need, but I'm still considering it anyway. I think I will swatch up a piece tonight with size 8 or 9 need and see what I think of the drape. As usual, I should have done that before I jumped into the project, but that's the great thing about knitting, you can almost always redo it!
