yarn, weight/yardage
So I have two skeins of yarn, partially used. I have 5.8 and 7.3 oz of each ball. I want to make something that calls for a specific yardage, equal to 3 skeins. So I looked up those skeins to find the weight and added the 3 up. I am well within the weight.

Ok, I'm being wordy - my question is, am I safe using the weight? Or should I actually measure my yardage? I really don't want to or really know the best way to measure yardage, I mean without breaking out the measuring stick. Oh, and the yarn in the pattern and what I have are both worsted weight, so it should be similar I think.
