I have a pattern that calls for 220 yds of yarn. Without thinking two much about it, I ordered two 110-yd skeins, and went right about my business.
Fortunately, my tension is nice and tight, and I ended up with about 10 inches of yarn leftover!
Anyway, that was the first time I've had a pattern that called for something where the length of my skeins was so exactly what I needed.
Next time I plan to buy an extra skein....but then do you just look for partial one-skein project for the leftovers?
Is that what most everyone does?
