It was just math. According to the pattern, 6 balls @ 166 yrds is 996 yrds...but the truth was it was 5 balls @ 166 yrds and 1 ball at 199 yrds, and that would make it around 1029.

The only reason this was a topic of discussion was because I have 1093 yrds of Luxury Alpaca Cashmere in a fingering type weight. Therefore, just making sure I will make it. I really should, as long as there aren't any long lengths of flawed yarn.

Either way...very is always good to over estimate the yardage a bit. Just in case.

Can't wait...
