      hereami --thanks for sharing the yardage calculator. That would be so handy to use, especially since I spin yarn and sometimes wonder how much I need to make a sweater or some project. Gonna' bookmark this one!

          hereami thanks much for this link - I will find this tool to be very helpful. I don’t know of a cheat sheet like this for crochet, but I will keep my eyes open for something similar.

          So glad you both like it. I printed off the copies and put it into my shawl binder. (so I wouldn't have to try to find it later.)

        I've just published a blog post that shows a cheap and easy way to film yourself crafting. This would be useful if you're taking an online class from a craft teacher, such as learning to knit or crochet. I show how to use a repurposed, plastic peanut jar, some thin cardboard, clear packing tape, and a few magnets to make a tripod for your smart phone camera.

        This is a really nice online charting program I have used a lot https://www.stitchfiddle.com/en
        There is a free version with all the basics and a paid version with more features.

          Sommerfugl This is the first time I have ever played with a chart program. I love this. I am going to make sure to save this link. Thank you so much for posting it here.

        This is a free yarn calculator. I needed to know a ball park number for the amount of yards in my inherited 2 ounce skeins of wool. Turns out I have roughly 227 yards of yarn. Knowing this will help me decide what to make out of it.
        Hope it helps someone else out there.

          hereami thank you for posting this yarn calculator - over the years I have had yarn without labels, and this will be very handy 😊😊

          I am so glad this was helpful to you as well.

          My wool came in 4 hanks. Visually it seemed like a lot of yarn. Apparently I need more experience with yarn of this texture and fiber.
          So having this tool will help me tremendously.
