I am not a math queen, and I do like to be certain I have enough yarn- do you think I was on target, or stunningly off-base when I placed this order?!

Knitpicks of course! So far I have used one and a half skeins of Sierra
for the back, and not even a whole skein of mohair. Oh- did I tell you
my mohair traumas? After a LONG day of work I came home with a friend
and saw that the puppy had knocked the gate down in the kitchen. The
gate was used to keep her out of trouble, and out of the rest of the
house. Somehow she freed herself, AND unzipped my knitting bag. Yes, it
was tightly zipped when I left it at the start of the day (what was I
thinking leaving my knitting at home?!) and unzipped at home. Mohair
was strewn up and down the steps, Buster had some strands cascading
across his back and one in this sharp teeth happily playing tug of war
with the puppy. I rescued it with my friend providing distractions, and
put it away. About 2 weeks later I was in the bathroom for about 3
minutes, and the mohair was in the same state, dogs playing in it,
Fast forward- a week out- while waiting for a friend at Cafe Latte I
began the tedious untangling process. Two older ladies stopped to chat,
and encouraged me, "You'll get it untangled, use knitters, we always
do." After Cafe Latte we went to Starbucks where I did indeed get it
wound neatly back up. I think I only had to cut out about 8 inches
total. No worries, and I have been fine and on-guard with my knitting
Oh- happy turkey day to all knitters, and happy knitting time If you're
not the turkey cooks!
