Update on my sweater

Wao that is gorgeous, I wish I was that close. Right now, I am on row 37 of chart M3 and I am getting worry. I have 5 balls of gray left and 2 of the white, besides a little more than half of the working gray and a tiny amount of the working white. I don't see how it is going to be enough but I also don't know how much more I will need and i have to order it overseas from Astrid. I am doing the mid size cardigan.

Do any of you have any idea of how much to order or should I wait until I ran out completely and see where I am? I am afraid there will be not by the time that i use all of my balls and I absolutely love this sweater but also I do not want to go ahead and order more of what I need. Advice please

Aurita,
Keep plugging along - you will get there. I knit the same size cardigan as you, and I mentioned previously that I had to order 2 additional balls of gray to finish. Astrid says she has plenty of the gray left, so don't worry about ordering it right now, especially since you don't really know how much more you will need. I ran out with about 2 inches to finish on the second sleeve, and used up almost both of the new balls to finish. I thought that I would also run out of white, but I still have plenty left over.
If I were you, I would just wait until running out, and then place the order with Astrid. Mine came in only a few days!! Good luck.

Thank you very much for the comment Cindy. I will keep plugging along, I love this sweater and knitting it, no idea of the fit yet, so hopefully, it will be ok

Hi Aurita,

Don't worry too much about the grey, I have 20 extra balls put aside for the KAL-knitters..... so these are NOT on my website for sale yet. And I can always order in more if necessary, Karisma isn't being discontinued, so just keep happily knitting away on your cardigan!

Hope this makes you feel better?

love,
Astrid.
