We're amazed at how often we reach for our little scale! It’s an endlessly useful tool that will prove itself again and again. You can use it to divide a 100g ball of sock yarn in half for two socks. You can use it to estimate whether you have enough yarn left to finish a project.
Example: the first sleeve weighs 150g; you need to knit the other sleeve plus a collar; you have 250g of yarn left—you can breathe easy.
You might also use a scale to weigh your swatch and calculate how many square inches of knitting you're getting per gram so you can estimate just how big a project you can get out of your available yarn.
Example: Your 5" by 5" swatch weighs 25g so each square-inch weighs 1g; you have 1,600g of yarn so you can knit about 1,600 square inches or a 40" x 40" afghan.
We always weigh our finished shop samples so we know how many yards of yarn we actually used; this is helpful when we want to substitute a different yarn.
Example: Our hat took two 50g/100yd skeins but weighs 60g so it only used 120yds. A substitute yarn with 120yds per skein would only require one skein.
You'll be surprised at how often a scale will tell you just what you need to know!
