:thinking: Doesn't sound like enough yardage for a sweater, but I don't know off the top of my head how to convert meters to yards.

If you know the gauge the yarn is typically knit at (look at the label, or to a swatch test or two), you can calculate how much yardage you'll need for a project. Webs ( sells a very very handy yardage estimator card, I forget what it's called, but it's a laminated card by Ann Budd, costs about $5, comes in very handy for things like this, you can look up how much yarn would be needed for a sweater in your size and see if you've got enough to go forth.

I own the card....If you tell me the gauge and your chest diameter, I can tell you how many yards you'll need for a sweater if you like. :D (PM me if I neglect to reply, I don't always keep up with threads.)

And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
