On one of my groups on Ravelry, this is a discussion thread. I had my husband save me Altoids tins (I don’t eat mint)…but they were empty so far!
Yesterday, same wonderful husband went to the head shop (he is a college professor and hopes that if any students saw him they don’t spread rumors–he was there for me! nothing illegal!) and bought me this little scale.
I had heard of this sort of scale, but I’d never seen one. You put the keyring looking thing on your finger and the solid circle hangs down. You clip the thing you want to weigh on and it hangs and the arrow points to the weight. One side is marked up to 4 oz and the other side is marked up to 100 grams. It cost $7.
And it fits in my Altoids tin.
