Several months ago,Glenna at Knitting to stay Sane, shared a new knitting gadget she had just bought. It was from Lee Valley Tools and I decided right then and there I had to have one. It was this pocket weigh scale.
It wasn't marketed for knitters, but it works really well for weighing left-over yarn. I love it because it is super small and compact (folds closed, weighs 500g) which means it tucks away easily (key for my small space living) and is portable too in the event I should ever feel the need to weigh yarn on the go. (okay, that's a stretch but you never know).
The thing that came to mind immediately when I saw this scale was that I could finally know the answer to a burning question I've had. You see, I have some left over Seasilk from the Waterfall Scarf I made and I've never really known how much it was exactly. Enter the weigh scale and voila, I have my answer.
Now if anybody has a pattern I could knit up with 1.75 oz of Seasilk I would love to hear about it.
