Playing Yarn Chicken

I've been working on Toujours and that's all I'm going to be working on until I finish it or run out of yarn.  After finishing the body, I divided the remaining yarn in half for the sleeves.  I had forgotten the neckband though, so I knit that first with the yarn I'm using for the first sleeve (it used 6 grams).  I'm now working on the first sleeve, watching my tiny balls of yarn (I'm alternating to blend colors) get tinier and tinier.  I'm less than halfway down the sleeves right now (they're short because the body of the sweater is so big and boxy), but I have no idea if I'm going to have enough yarn to finish.  I can take 3 grams of yarn from the other sleeve to finish this one, but I don't know if that's going to be enough.

I might have enough yarn to just squeak by.  I really have no idea.  So I'm just going to keep knitting until I'm finished or I run out of yarn.  It's very exciting!

I was playing yarn chicken with a pair of socks recently. Fortunately I found the bit which I'd ripped back then discarded. It finished the pair exactly, with about 8" to spare.
