Needle Size
Welcome! For dishcloths it wouldn't really matter the size of your needles. You might use fewer stitches than called for or it might end up big enough to be a towel! For socks though you will definitely want to use smaller needles (according to the gauge). Whenever you make something that has to fit your body or be a particular size you really need to use the right size needles.
