Just fricking shoot me now

Once upon a time I bought a Kaffe Fasset book and marvelled at the patterns and the colour mixes and the skill and and and And so I spent many hours deciding on colours and sent an order off to Texere. Then I didn't like half the colours when they arrived and so I went to John Lewis and spent much more time choosing replacement colours for those I hadn't liked. Then I paused - safe in the knowledge that I had my lovely wool, I had my pattern, I had the needles, I just needed to wait for the moment to take me. And tonight, this very night, just 10 minutes ago, that moment arrived.

I have bought 4-ply instead of DK.

I am in complete turmoil.

Wahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Fricking knitting and fricking wool and fricking colours and gosh darn kaffe fasset may all his colours fade.

OK. This need not be a disaster. I could rework the pattern for the new stitch guage. The extremely complicated pattern....which I probably wouldn't now have enough wool for....remain calm....Aaaaaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhhhhhh f*ck

And Pooch has run off to the all day star wars thing with my camera lead. And there's no chocolate in the house. And have PMT......

Ouch. My sympathies. I suggest you put the yarn away for a while, and let it stew....

Meanwhile, try something completely different like a modular knit (think Horst Schulz, Ginger Luters etc) maybe?

Can you exchange it @ Texere & JL's for the right weight of yarn?

Just breathe and repeat "In with love, out with hate" It works for me.

Oh nooooo - what a nightmare - no chocolate - how did you let that happen !!!

Is an exchange possible ? or could you just keep it in your stash and start again ?
