I have knit through three of my four skeins of yarn and now I must decide if I want to keep knitting until I run out of yarn, or if I want to wrap things up by finishing out the repeat of the cable pattern, work a couple of reverse stockinette and call it good. Right now it falls just below my hips. If I keep going and use up my fourth skein it will probably go another 6 inches, which I think might mess up the proportions. I think I will try finishing it up today and I'll try it on before I cut my yarn. That way, if I don't like it I can always rip back and keep going.
Besides, the leftover yarn would make a wonderfully soft and snuggly cowl.
