Design dilemma

The best laid schemes of mice and men
from Robert Burns' poem To a Mouse, 1786

The most carefully prepared plans may go wrong.

I had this great idea for a sweater. Casting on the stitches, I happily knit the back. Back complete, I surveyed the yarn remaining and realized that I may not have enough of the light lilac.
No, worries, I thought. I'll just buy more.

 Easier said than done -- it seemed. The closest colour I could find is the one resting on top of the sweater.
What to do?
 Only one thing:  rip, rip, rip. And poof, the sweater disappears.
