I am working on a yardage calculator. It will probably take me several days to build the database for the calculator. I plan to have select lists for style, size, yarn type, stitches/inch and rows/inch. Then the user would enter the yarn name and the yardage per skein. The result would be the recommended number of skeins to work the garment. I have researched several sources for information on the yardage for a given size/style. The time consuming part is collating all the resources into the database.
BTW, my day job at http://www.illinois.gov" target="_blank">www.illinois.gov
is going away July 1, 2003 because our local governor has not made his wishes known regarding IT contract staff. Therefore, my motto is now
Will code ColdFusion and/or SQL for food.
