Howdy folks!

I've added a match challenge captcha to comment forms in an effort to minimize the amount of spam we receive. Below the comment form, you'll see a simple math question. No calculus required, I promise!

Please continue let me know if you run in to any issues or inconsistencies on the site and I'll do my best to make things better.

Happy Friday!

Ha! Susie doesn't knit, she crochets! Trick question. Her husband knits. And the whole problem is flawed because you didn't tell us if we're knitting "balls up" on this one. I'd like to transfer please!
