I have two skeins of eco and have been wondering how far I can go.
Another tip...I'm kicking myself because I skimmed the part of the instructions regarding switching from the pattern to the chart at row 48. I missed the part about starting row 48 in the middle of the chart! I should have known better but I'm embarrassed to say I got to row 60 before I realized my mistake. : ( Anyway, just thought I'd share my experience as well.

Eco. I had a little ball left from my last hemlock in the same color.
I believe I went just the required amount on that one. This time I
extended to 102...Now I have ripped and bound off about 3 times. I
have pulled out a whole row trying to get enough yarn to finish the
My advice is to remember that bid off takes a lot of yarn. A lot. I
will try to remember to post the weight of the actual project or some
other indication like size. etc. Right now I just hope I have enough
yarn.I would hate to have to rip back a whole row and bind off again.
That will only leave 2 rows plain knit between the yarn overs and the
bind off. I would have been better just straight knitting an extra
couple of rows.
Just wanted to share. Two skeins of eco means two skeins of eco.
