Is this how you buy your yarn? No wonder I can't find anything here in the small shop in town. So heavy worsted means 18sts =4"? and is that different because they said 18sts over pattern? How can you tell the true colour of yarn
from the web site? or the feel of it or is it all the same because it is heavy worsted. Man, am I lost when it comes to yarn. I have not purchased anything before from a web site. Is it American and does that mean I have to pay more to bring it up here(Canada) this is a pic of the swatch (after blocking) I am to measure my stitches from. First, I have never blocked before second, when I measured gauge before I just knit a small swatch 6x4 and checked sts per inch. Boy, did I ever get lucky years ago because all my sweaters turned out ok. I read a article on blocking so now I know how to do it.
