I have recently learned a lesson when buying yarn. Make sure you get enough!! I ordered some Schachenmayr Micro online. As I have posted before I am planning on knitting a tank top with it, but I'm really beginning to worry that I won't have enough. Unfortunately I don't have any way to get anymore. Sooooooo If I don't have enough, I'm up the creek. My friend Janette sent me some good links that help you estimate how many yards of yarn you need to make a sweater. They give estimates for different sweater sizes and different yarn weights. These links actually saved my butt on a recent yarn purchase! I figure that I can't be the only one that learns lessons the hard way, so I thought I should share them with you.
