Out of Yarn?
I've been lurking and knitting EZ hats (oh the hats!) and thinking I should post them. Soon ;)
I need some reassurance and have to jump in with a question:
I have received 9 skeins of unidentified bulky-woolish Avalanch yarn courtesy of Ryan. 3 skeins each of 3 colors to be knit for Dulaan. I thought I would knit a giant mindless garter stitch square (a.k.a. Bog Jacket - because this one is gorgeous) because that's all I could handle right now and I love EZ construction methods, fashion forward, or not. (For those needing a quick refresher on its construction, I'll point you here. The approach/pattern is in EZ Knitting Around.)
Each skein has 60 or so yards. I had to cast on 70 stitches for a 28 inch chest and I'll need 70 ridges (140 rows) to create the square. If my first two skeins equal 8 inches long/21 ridges, I've got enough yarn, yes? (The yarn is so bulky and I go through a skein so fast, its scaring me. Just note my email address: running out of yarn is an issue. It may, or may not, contribute to my finishing issues. I'm not going there.)
