-any wips count for total meterage when finished during this time
-spinning counts per ply + total length when finished plying together
- plastic canvas counts per weight, then measure out what the length would for that weight
-Anything that I designs counts for 3 times the finished length. But must have a finished pattern written out too. ( swatch, project, and finished pattern written out)
