Knit Gauge

I've been organising my fabric stash by creating an index card for each fabric, attaching a swatch of fabric to the card, noting meterage. I also want to note percentage of stretch for knit fabrics, and wasn't sure how to calculate the stretch. Previously I've used the 'Pick a Knit' ruler to assess fabric suitability, however that only helps me with a specific pattern.

I've found a great explanation on how to calculate the percentage of stretch here: http://thesewingdivas.wordpress.com/2006/07/16/knit-gauge/ on The Sewing Divas blog. What a great site - lots of helpful information.
