    I really love your scientific approach – way to go!
    A somewhat more inaccurate method is to weigh the finished project.
    If you find a similar yarn at a store and you know the weight and lenght of that you can make a rough estimate.
    In the knitting pattern book (leaflet) from my grandmother’s days I see that even if the yarn was handspun they had very exact weight estimates for socks and mittens.
