Unlike my friend from Strong&Fit (not fun today), I wasn’t overworked. I got off work 1 hour early but didn’t get the spend that whole hour because I spent 25 minutes figuring out what I should do. I could’ve gone to fitness depot for a half foam roller or the opposite direction for a scale. I didn’t want to do both because traffic jams make me angry and if I did both, I would have been stuck somewhere.
I went for the scale. Turned out the Escali Pico ($27) scale has a maximum capacity of 500 grams. I’d thought it was more. I didn’t buy it and instead, bought this aged balsamic vinegar and Black Cat espresso. Since I was close enough to this smoke shop where I had checked out some pocket scales last week, I headed over.
Slightly under pressure, I made a hasty purchase after I compared two AWS (American Weigh Scale) 1000 X 0.1 gram and one 650 X 0.1 gram scales. Didn’t like the look of the 650 and bought the more expensive 1000 X 0.1 gram scale because of its removable cover that doubles as a tray.
The AWS ($21) is black with a stainless steel platform, backlit screen, tare feature and both grams and ounces amongst a few other measurements. It’s pretty cute and I find the tare feature useful as I need to use the cover/tray to weigh the yarn more accurately. Hopefully, I won’t have to calibrate it for awhile because I don’t have any 200 or 500 gram weights.
Didn’t bother running today and focused on finishing my scarf. Yes, it’s done and soaking in the wool wash.
