I tried to do a search, but couldn't come up with an answer to this question. (Got some pretty funny threads, though. ;) ) I am looking at a pattern that calls for "knitting weight" yarn, but I have no clue what that might be as I've never heard that term before. :??

What's the gauge given for the pattern?

Knitting weight would be the pounds that I have added to my bottom and hip area since beginning knitting and giving up everything else in my life that requires me to move from the knitting chair!

Best. Definition. Ever.

I totally did a spittake when I read that. Thanks Carmen! *hugs*

I actually figured it out all on my very own, believe it or not. :lol: Not what knitting weight is -- Carmen has that right! :roflhard: -- but the pattern later calls for Paton's Classic Wool, which is worsted weight.

Thanks for the (humorous) replies, though! :thumbsup:
