Lime & Violet Marathon Mileage... Recomputed

Square Weight
175 yards / 50 g * 7 g = 24.5 yards. More than 47 feet! I thought 47 feet might have been an underestimate. Time to recompute my mileage...

Socks: 5 x 400 yards
Clapotis: 400 yards
squid eyes: 2 (hmmm... one blanket square worth of yarn?)
bookmark: 1 (one square worth? two? I'll say two.)
blanket squares: 84 - 46.5 = 37.5

2000 yards + 400 yards + (40.5 x 24.5 yards) = 3392.25 yards = 1.92741477 miles

I'm close to 2 miles! Just ~128 yards to go to have two miles... actually, I have one sock not in the total, so I'm now *over* two miles! :) One more mile to make my goal. :)

Thanks to your calculation, I finally got the whole idea of the "Marathon". That's amazing. Keep going! :)
