Yardage Question--How Much Do I Need?
Does anyone have a link or chart or handy-dandy thingy that can give me a very general range of how many yards of yarn I'd need for various products. I've got NO idea or intuition for measurement and when I look at yarn/prices I never know how many balls of a yarn I'd need to make "something."

So I'm looking for some loose guidelines. Like say--about how many yards/grams of worsted weight would I need for oh... a plainish size M longsleeve sweater? How about bulky? sport? How about a tank top? fingering weight socks?

I appreciate it!

You might want to take a gander at this recent thread.
