bad habits

This is the second time that I have had to stop the knitting to spin up more yarn for this project! I really should learn to check my yardage before I start a pattern....

I can't see any "bad habits" in this photo!

Oooh! Your lace is beautiful! Your spun yarn, too! What is the pattern you are using? Is it a scarf or a shawl?

Hi Kate,

I'm glad that you like the lace. It is an easy scarf pattern from Spindlicity. You can read more about it, and follow the link from a previous post I did about it...

Thank you, Cyndy for the link! I know just the yarn for this pattern. It is an angora blend that a friend sells...just not sure if I have enough! The pattern calls for 4 oz of fleece spun to worsted weight...do you have any idea how much yardage that is? Thanks, again! Kate

You are welcome!

Average worsted weight runs about 50 yards per ounce....your mileage may vary ;-)

Sorry that I didn't keep better track and measure what I have been doing, like I say, bad habits!
