Unger for yarn
Another wonderful benefit of Ravelry and the fact that people share info about their stash: I’ve now got a clue about the yardage of both my Colourmart DK angora/lambswool AND my Unger stash!
I’m really tickled about the Unger; I think I recall not too long ago writing in my journal something about how proud I am about having more Unger Cruise than anyone else on Ravelry (although I’m still not sure that’s something to brag about). But despite each and every ball of this yarn having an identical and very clear label, thanks to my atrocious math skills I could never figure out 1) how much yardage each ball contained and 2) what exactly 1.4/10 oz meant.
Well, because there are now three or four other people who own Unger Cruise and someone was clever enough to figure out the yardage of a single ball (210 yards), I now can add up my total yardage and record in my notebook.
And it’s a pretty mindblowing sum, I must say. I’ve got four different colors: pink, apricot, white, and mint. Here’s how it stacks up −− the mint green (6 skeins) = 1260 yds; the apricot (8 skeins) = 1680; the pink (11 skeins) = 2310; and the white (20 skeins) = 4200.
This means that I have a total of 9,240 yards of Unger Cruise yarn. I guess that’s a good reason to stop buying the stuff — especially since I still have no clue what to knit with it.
