Difference between DK and Sport Weight?
I know I should know this...but I don't.

What's the difference?

Sport weight is a little heavier than fingering or sock yarn and a little lighter than DK (light worsted) yarn. You can see where the different yarn types line up here:
Judge: Madame, either you will have to cease knitting or I will have to cease judging. Which shall it be?

Miss Marple: It helps me to concentrate, milord.

Judge: It does not help me, madame.

Miss Marple: Oh. Very well. (puts away knitting)

Judge: Thank you, Madame.
