i have some rowan felted tweed (50g/191yd) that i want to make some fingerless gloves out of. the pattern i want to loosely base them on uses cleckheaton country silk (50g/105yd). they are both DK. why is the yardage per 50 gram ball so different? i'm trying to figure out if i'll need another ball. i'll probably go back and get another one anyway, because i'm going to add a cable. i would just like to know why they had to go and make this so complicated.
i just want to knit some gloves - not do a whole lot of math conversions. there's a reason why i didn't get very far in math after high school.
