Yarn Weight
okay so i bought some of this and i must confess i am really bad at figuring out yarn weights...especially since i usually just grab a yarn and start knitting it without thinking about it most of the time. but i bought some of this today. i have been coveting it for a long time and when it went on sale today I decided it was time to get some. so what i am trying to figure out is what weight is it? i THINK it is either a DK or sport weight. am i right?


(i bought 12 and 05 btw)

That yarn is YUMMY I think I'd pick the same colours as you did, if I had to choose.

Here's a link for ya:
http://www.yarnstandards.com/weight.html

The yarn says 24sts/30rows for gauge, and according to the chart that means it falls somewhere between sport and DK, just like you thought!

yum! Maybe 2 skeins of each would be enough for a little tank? Could definitely make a luxurious scarf!

lol that is exactly the yarn we were fondling there. i fear i may have to go back and buy more too if i can come up with something lovely to make with it....

Kemp a tank is a great suggestion but...umm....yeah that wouldn't work for me... :rofling: a scarf isn't a bad suggestion though. it just feels so lovely i think i would want to wear it all the time! :D

Kinda funny how they had it in its own little cabinet, just like the pseudoephedrine medications or expensive perfumes...like something that is normally off limits to the general public. :rofling:
