I have 9 balls of ribbon yarn. 25g, no yardage shown. The pattern calls for 9, 50g balls. I realize that although the 25g per ball that I have is just 1/2 the g's they call for, BUT could it be there is still the same yardage because of the "lightness" of the ribbon yarn I have? I hope you can figure out what I am trying to say. OR, could I go to a much larger needle? Please help here. Thanks. Hertha
Have you tried looking up the yarn at yarndex? They might have the yardage listed even if it's not on the ball band.
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
