ooop no the yarn weight thingy says that it is lighter....hrmmm

so sport weight is good for baby blankets right or should i add a third?

It's not an exact science. A lot depends on the yarn itself. I think your best bet is to do a swatch with two and three and see what it looks like. I'd generally say two fingering is close to dk. I don't even think other countries have yarn they call sport weight.

Okay, wait, I know this one. Is it "one in the hand" or "two in the bush"?

No, it's six of one, half-dozen of another. ;)

For a baby blanket ... use what ever will make it go fastest.... they are often neverending!

I didn't catch that it was for a baby blanket! No swatching necessary! ;)

Forgive me? :shifty:

In my house, the following theorem has been proven:

Two strands of fingering weight = (tangled mess)*(much swearing and flinging of knitting equipment)

So I just don't go there anymore. :oops:
