What is the difference between a 50g and 100g skeinof yarn.
I have had an eye on this lace shawl for a long time. All it says is to use a 100g laceweight yarn and 3.25 needles.
Ok I am fine with the needles, but it is the 100g that is the problem the yarn I want to use is 50g skein from knitpicks. So can someone explain in baby term the difference between 50g and 100g.
Not in any hurry I will be doing a knit a long sometime in July.
Thanks to anyone how can help me. Then I can keep that information in my note book.

Happy Knitting


I am memere on Ravelry
