I was looking for some yarn to finish a stripe -- again! not the greatest guesstimating skills. :) I wrote to a few Ravelers who had it in their stash
es and kept my fingers crossed.
One friend wrote back that she not only had the yarn I need, but "some other scraps" she could get together. Those "other scraps" amounted to 3.5 lbs!!!! of partial skeins and scraps. Wendy did the math on how many ounces that is, but all I know is that it was one HUGE number.
My blanket passed out when it saw the bag. I'm surprised I didn't too. :)
