Scales, the good kind :)

Can't go represent. Indiana to New York is a little too far to go for this bunny. So I'm a little bummed, but not much. I'm playing with a new little toy.

Hel-lo scale. :)

I have a scale that weighs in grams AND ounces. :) Is it silly that this makes me inordinately happy? I purchased this happy little scale at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. It wasn't the most expensive scale or the least, but it suits my needs. Now that I have my scale, there will be fewer "oh shit, I think I'm going to run out of yarn" moments. (At least, I'm really hoping that's true.) Plus I can tell how much roving I have when I can't remember how much I bought. (oops) Also, I can tell how much roving is left when I'm spinning. Um, I'm a bit too happy.
Look! Over there! It's yarn on the wheel. Are you distracted yet? Good. I'm going to go slip away and play with the bunny (who is 100% better now).

I am so glad to hear that the bunny is doing better and it sounds like you are as well.

I have a mail scale, but it just doesn't seem to weigh small weights very well. :(

Oh come on! The oh shit moments make knitting more interesting. lol. I made a pair of socks for my son in law and had 14" of yarn left. Now that was an entire toe of "oh shit" knitting.

This must be the week to buy scales. I just bought myself one. I have finally realized that I'm incapable of 'eyeballing' when I attempt to split a skein into 2 equal balls.

Have fun with the bunny.

I love that scale - I have at home and I'd be lost without it -
