sock yarn substitutions
I was supposed to use brown sheep nature spun sport for these socks for my father, but the yarn lady sold me cherry tree hill & koigu instead.
it says in the pattern to use size 1 or size to obtain gauge, but the website that sells bsns says size 5? and my koigu label says size 3 (the other says nothing!)? so I can use a size 0 and that's fine?
can I completely disregard labels in general when I'm knitting socks & do you think it's more important to get gauge or how tight the stitches feel when they're knit? can they be too tight? and how do I know whether it's too tight? is tighter better for socks?
