- Con: We don't use that many stamps.
- Pro: I have yarn that should be weighed. A scale would handy for this.
- Con: it might be difficult to cancel my account at the end of the trial period.
- Pro: Yarn + scale = lots of new knowledge = happiness...or is it power? Either way, this is something good.
- Con: Who knows what might be in the company's software?*
- Pro: Yarn...hello?
The free scale ended up not being free at all since I had to wait until after the trial to qualify for it and then wait some more while my coupon was redeemed, and now I'll have to wait until Monday to call the company to cancel my account, but by golly that scale is mine.
Now I can report on the progress of my knitting with even more detail!
The Hana tank top is seamed up, and the only remaining step is to darn in the ends.
Amount of yarn remaining: approximately 1.6 oz.
I knitted half of the Backyard Leaves scarf using slightly less than 2 balls of Karabella Aurora 8.
Mass of a ball of Karabella Aurora 8: 1.8 oz (the ball band says 1.75 oz, so maybe the band itself added a bit extra)
Mass of half a scarf: 3.0 oz
I also worked some more on one of the socks. I don't have any stats on the socks themselves, but there is about 1.5 oz of yarn left.
Here's a gratuitous shot of the scale in action:
