Watership Down II - Charts 5 and 6 Done

I switched to the second skein at the end of row 10 of Chart 5, after using up all of skein 1.
And after completing Chart 6 I still had 16 grams of skein 2 left over.

I did some math and have figured out that I can do the first border in skein 3 and the second border in skein 4.

My first Watership Down was done in Selene, which has 875 yds/100 grams.  This shawl is being knit in Eos, which has 1260 yds/114 grams.

On my first Watership Down I used about 24 grams for the first border.  To make the math even easier, let's call it 25 grams.  So, dividing 875 yds by 4 gets me 218.75 yds, which I'll round up to 220 yds.  Doing the math (220 yds)*(114 g/1260 yds) is approximately 20 grams.

Similarly, I used 28 grams on the second border, so the number of yards I used would be (28 g)*(875 yds/100 g) = 245 yds.  I rounded that up to 250 yds and calculated the amount of yarn I would need as (250 yds)*(114 g/1260 yds) or about 23 grams.
