The yarn blocked OBEDIENTLY & PERFECTLY, too!

There was some discrepancy on the yarn labels. Some labels stated different yardages and gram weights from the others, plus most hanks weighed MORE than stated on their labels! So I'm left wondering if I've got the YARDAGE stated.

It appears as if I was given loads more. I contacted the yarn people, and they said they measure the yardage by the 'turns' around, not so much on weight.

I'm still left wondering how many yards my Perry used, and how much yarn is really left over. The yarn people have a loosey-goosey way of packaging their hanks. If anything, they are cheating themselves out of a whole heck-of-a-lotta yarn!
