Measuring Up

“Captain Fantastic, raised and regimented, hardly a hero…

Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?

Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?Measuring Brother, Can You Spare A Dime , – there’s my friend again; I’m beginning to like him – because I have some purple wool – recently untangled by I – I could use.

41.5 (x2) = Total L = 83 in x 33 avg W

If I’m correct, I need 99 L based on my W…pattern check:

Remember that you need the 1:3 ratio to get the correct sizing for folding. Since our width is 13″ (ish) we need the length to be 39″ (ish).

…I was right!

Like A PrayerDing! Dang! So I need sixteen more inches…and I just realized the purple wool I had in mind to finish this matches the fiber content of Like A Prayer Shawl…LIGHTBULB!…that would make a nice felted knit bag also with the existing color blocking…OMG! Especially, if it measures up for the same bag!

Bing! Bang! Make it so!

But then I have no other wool on hand to continue with Brother, Can You Spare A Dime. 😦

Oh, but then I find something made 90% of New Wool. New Wool? Will it felt. On hold…tomorrow will call International Trade Association Office of Textiles and Apparel.

In the meantime, I suppose I will commence Captain Fantastic and The Brown Dirt Cowboy.
