Project Yardage Calculating

If someone told me as a kid that I’d be blogging about math in my 30’s I would have thought you’re absolutely crazy… but here we are! Although to be fair, this is more just a post about how to be lazy.

A few months ago I picked up a temporary office job and binge-listened to Brittany’s B-Hooked Podcast while assembling tax files for hours and hours. In episode 44 she talks about calculating the amount of yarn used in your project and enlightened me about using a method that I tend to avoid at all costs – math! Go ahead and give it a listen if you’re not yet familiar with this method.

Originally, I set up a spreadsheet to calculate the numbers and made it available for download. But UPDATE! my rockstar husband of Abtek Web Design just built it right in to my website! You will need a digital scale that measures ounces/grams, a little bit of info from the tag on your skein of yarn. Just plug in your 3 numbers and voila! No math! Be sure to bookmark the Project Yardage Calculator so it can easily be referred to. Now go make something cool!
