I was thinking of making this
T-Shirt with my Frugal Findings. But (yes, you knew a "but" was coming) ... I'm not sure if I have enough yarn. So I need some opinions ... I know how many ounces my Frugal Findings are, but I don't know the yardage. Based on ounces, I think I have enough. However, according to the pattern, the T Shirt only requires roughly 11 oz of yarn. Does that sound right to you guys?
I compared my Frugal Findings to some stash Lion Cotton that I have. The Lion Cotton strand is just a little thicker than Frugal Find. Any thoughts?

I even remember when they were selling them 4/$1. Guess who's crying in their yarn? :crying:
Aw Renna :( I'm sorry. Totally keep your eyes peeled though. You just never know when they'll have some sweaters coming in.
