Thank you Mrs. von Zuben

Just look at all the lovely kool aid I bought whilst away. Woo Hoo
Yesterday was a perfect day to end my holiday. The sun was bright and I started swatching for Michael's vest with the wool I bought in Connecticut. I got all my addis out and cast on.
Fancy shmancy graph huh? I did it on Excel. Cheaper than knitting soft wear. Now I know I used a calculator but if I hadn't learned arithmatic from Mrs. von Zuben I wouldn't have a clue how to take 26 sts. over 4 inches times a finished size of 46" with 90% of the total number of stitches for the rib and making it a number divisable by 4 ....... =272

I have had few packets of Kool Aid for a long time now and still have not got around to using it. I shall eventually.

Wow... That's an impressive amount of math! You were lucky to have Mrs. von Zuben!!

Maybe I just have to read a few of your older posts, but I'm curious about the Kool Aid...

Go back to Dec 08 for some sample ideas. It's a lot of fun.
