Is this your question?

I had an email this morning from Sue.  Sue asks

While at the Stiches fest this weekend, I purchased a pattern of your entrelac baby blanket.  I have a question about the yarn yardage -- is the yarn required a regular worsted weight and I would need about 1700 yards?

Sue did not leave me her email address so this is the best I could come up with for answering her.

Hi Sue,
The yardage requirements for the Entrelac Baby Blanket call for 4 skeins of Solana.  Solana has 320 yds/skein, so you will need 1280 yds total. Solana is a worsted weight yarn that gets 5 sts/inch on a US# 8 needle.

Hope that helps,
