When do you start to panic??

I seem to start to panic at about the time I am getting close to finishing something and then wonder...will I have enough yarn?? hmmm...

I am working on a baby sweater and I have the body and one sleeve finished and here I am. See that cute little ball of cream coloured yarn. That is close to all I have. I bought just enough and now it is getting a little too close for comfort.

This is the yarn that I have left from the body of the sweater. It had quite a few little squares of cream and green so these are the little balls I have from doing that part. So I am confident that I have enough cream to finish the sleeve. The problem comes when I think about the button band and around the neck.

If I am not going to be able to make it in the cream I have green and blue left over. Both the green and the blue have been used in the body of the sweater. So now the choice is... blue or green button band?? The cuffs on the sleeves are cream and the bottom of the body is in cream so...hmmm.

I am leaning toward the green because it is a little more subtle.
But would it be better to do the blue so it looks more deliberate??
My vote is green what do you think? post a comment and let me know your opinion.
