I checked at home, and apparently I buy around 6 pounds of peas every week.
After that, I headed off to my local yarn store to take advantage of their swift and to ball my laceweight yarn. The first six hanks of alpaca went quite well. Then I headed on to the 1000 yards of silk/wool blend, cobweb weight.
Let us just say that it took more time to ball the cobweb than it did to ball the first six hanks.
Let us also say that the cobweb is still in two balls, connected on the outside.
Let us also add that the (very nice) yarn store ladies had to unlock the door to let me out, despite my going there a full four and a half hours before closing time.
Let us also say that argh hate that yarn so much omg tangles tangles tangles woe!
