Guess what I got in the mail today!? A food scale! I bought it from Amazon after spending 45 minutes comparing costs and options, specifically tare weight option. It took just over a week to arrive by UPS, traveling from Arizona to Alabama. ‘Course it won’t be used much for food. I mainly got it for weighing my yarn. I’m in Weight Watchers and occasionally have the need to weigh chicken or a hamburger. BTW, I’ve lost 37+ pounds since starting and have 12 pounds more to lose! Right now I’m pushing the envelope a little bit to see just what I can get by with. I know, I know, that’s not quite right but if given the choice between a piece of homemade chocolate pie or a three-course meal, nutrition is going to lose.
Right away I weighed the finished Spring Forward sock to make sure I had enough yarn to finish the mate. I’m still learning about how much yarn it takes to knit a particular project. I was concerned about the yarn since the pattern is mostly YOs and SSK and K2tog stitches. However, since weighing it on my shiny, new scale, I should have more than enough yarn! That pleases me to no end.
