At this point, I think it's pretty clear that when I find patterns that I like, I make them. Multiples of them. Especially when they're good gifts.
I'm into the decreases. I'm hoping to not break into the fourth skein I have (so I can return it to JoAnn Fabrics) but I'm pretty sure I'll need it for the last few rows. I did weight the two final skeins and I used one that was 122 vs. 118 grams, so maybe it'll last me. Either way, I should have an answer tomorrow!
