Around here, though, it's called Hand2Hand. And Saturday I was handed for FREE two bulging grocery bags (plastic, not paper) of yarn yarn YARN. Almost entirely acrylic yarn, by the looks of it, and mostly 4-ply ww. But there're a few balls of sport weight and fingering. I fingered it all. Mmmmm.
Now to figure out how much of each ball I have. I found a yarn guide at Trembling Prairie that should help me calculate yardage based on ball weight and how many wraps per inch each yarn yields.
Oh, and scattered throughout one bag were 77 granny squares of different colors and sizes. The most common size was about 3 inches, I think. I've never used granny squares before, so I don't know what to do with them. I don't know if I have enough to make anything significant. Any advice?
