I am a knitter. And like most knitters, I have a stash of yarn, waiting to be made into sweaters, socks, baby hats...no, this is not my stash:
It isn't unusual for yarn to only be sold by grams here, you have to guess on the yardage. I didn't want to do this, so I measured off one of the balls of worsted yarn and found it was approximately 155 yards. That meant I needed to go back and get another all to be on the safe side for Steve's sweater.
