Hi all,
I am generally new to knitting and am looking for an summary explanation of the yarn weights and what they mean. I need to know more about this so I can find cheaper yarn that will still work for my patterns. I have searched so many knitting and yarn sites, but haven't come across this info yet. Does anyone know of a site where I can find this info? Thanks.

Yarndex (http://www.yarndex.com/) is a good place to look for substitutes.

Here (http://www.yarnstandards.com/weight.html) is a chart of yarn weights.

Awesome!! Thanks for the quick reply. I swear, I need 20 more hours in the day to do all the knitting I want to do!
