I Never Said I Was Good At Math

If two ridges take 6 grams, then how many grams will ten ridges take?

Answer (as I said last night) = 60!

Wrong!!!!

Ten ridges will take 30 grams. So I have plenty of yarn to do another stripe of the Fathom followed by the Fiesta...oh, decisions, decisions.

I've never been good at math either; I would of said the same thing! How did you ultimately figure it out?

Oh, the problem was that I was confusing rows and ridge...there are two rows to every ridge. So I was thinking "Two ridges equals 6 grams." When I should have been thinking, "Two rows [that is to say, one ridge] takes 6 grams." Therefore, five ridges would be 30 grams.

As it turned out, I had plenty of yarn...I could have put a wider border on it. But I was really tired of those ever-growing rows.
