« New Zauberball Crazy Sock Yarn | Main | I've got it bad »

May 08, 2009



Here's what I found:

One extremely popular knitting magazine now prints wpi with each pattern yarn but no weight information. Why?? It irks me to no end.



well this is just non-expert me talking (not like you other gals)- but even if yarns tell you their wt - all yarn weights don't knit up the same - or look or feel the same - some fingering wts, sport wts, etc. are thicker or thinner than others - if it was me - I would compare it to what else I had in my stash that looked a similar wt. and then knit a swatch on maybe 2 different needle sizes that you think you'd want to use with that yarn- maybe a 2 - 3 inch swatch to see how that came out - then save the swatch and pin it to the yarn for future reference. (but I don't have that patience always to swatch - I know you're supposed to - but I get lazy in that dept.) I CAN identify with you on losing lables though :-)


I agree with Diane, but to at least get a starting point, I like Spinderella's chart available at .
