Helpful…or Overkill

Alright folks, polling the collective again.  Say you were looking at a knitting pattern (so out of character I know), would you rather see:

  • Shown in: So-Soft DK by Handwerks in the color Lemongrass, size medium.

Or do you prefer the rather wordier:

  • Shown in: So-Soft DK by Handwerks in the color Lemongrass. Shown in size medium, which used about 130 yards. One (230 yard) skein will likely make any of the listed sizes if the mitt doesn’t reach beyond the forearm.

This is for patterns for the book (ie not a stand alone downloadable pattern) if that matters.
