Ever stumble across a great sale on yarn but wonder how much you'll need to knit up a sweater or a sock? Wonder no more!
I found this at my LYS the other day, and thought I'd let you guys know about it. It's by Ann Budd, the managing editor of Interweave Press, and simply gives yarn yardage requirements for mittens, gloves, scarves, socks, hats, tams, vests, and sweaters at multiple sizes and gauges. It's really useful.
I came across it when I was looking at yarn to knit the scarf for the Scarf Exchange. I wondered aloud just how many skeins I'd need, and the owner of the store dropped this into my hands! I have been knitting fairly regularly for years now, and you'd think (maybe) that by now I'd have some of this info memorized, but about the only memorized number I have in my head is that two pounds of wool roving will make enough yarn for a sweater for me...and that's it. Not all that useful when you're in a knitting store with a summer sale going on!
