Pictures Boring ---- Stats Interesting (I hope)

O.K. I believe that my visitors are really getting bored with the weird pictures of the JJ Progress. So, just for fun I went to my beloved spreadsheet program and played around with #'s, this may scare you!!!!

I have completed 4 skeins of Briggs & Little Heritage Wool. (well almost, there is a small ball still hanging, very small)

4 skeins means that I have worked 784 m/860yds of yarn

That means that I have travelled .78km/.48miles over my sticks with my string.

That is 2,580 feet or 30,960 inches or 78,638.4 cm. over the same sticks with the same string.

I am now working on the side panel and have completed 16 ridges worked over 244 sts.

Now listen to this: The collar contains 7,192 sts; the neckband 918 sts; the two front panels 4240 X 2 sts; the back panel 7,808 sts and so far the side panel 9,272 sts for a grand total of 33,670 sts so far. Don't let these number scare you, it is all the simple garter stitch and is a great TV watching project. And as we all know, Knitting is very relaxing, be careful don't fall asleep with the sticks in your hands.

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of these numbers.
If you have a question, please leave a comment.

I will keep everyone updated with the project when the next skein is wound up, knitted, stroked and loved by MommaBearKnitting.
