Default knitting crocheting for so many years , may be

From timer to time as i look at the many knitted and crocheted things,
i made and use , or my family uses, and than i remember things i made
for presents i wonder how big would the surface be if i laid all those
things side by side ????
Just a thought , that passes my mind sometimes ,,,,,
Anyone else had similar thoughts ?

Mirjam,

So sweet, Gail and I have had the same thought and a penny for every
stitch I have crocheted or knitted. I have not knitted or crocheted as
long as you but I am approaching 30 year of knitting and longer that for
crochet. It has almost been 45 years.

Do you thing you could cover one acre Mirjam?n An acre is about 4,046
square meters.

Mirjam,

That is one thing I still do not do very faithfully is keep my journal
up. I preach it constantly to every one else, maybe someday I will do
what I preach. The notes make to so easy to go back and work something.
What gauge did use, what weight of yarn will give the right gauge with
this this size 8 needle. If you had a journal you might have that info.
What size sock did I knit for my sister?

It is so important to keep a journal faithfully. Then why don't you do
it Dennis!

I bet you could easily cover an acre!


Dennis
