Today we are discussing 
Yarn Weights and Substitutions.

All Yarns are classified into different yarn weights.
This refers to the yarn's strand thickness.

          0. Lace
             1. Super fine –Sock, Fingering
             2. Fine –Baby, Sport Weight
             3. Light  - Light Worsted Weight, DK Weight
             4. Worsted Weight, Afghan
             5. Bulky – Chunky weight, Rug yarns
             6. Super Bulky – Blanket
             7. Jumbo - Roving 
                 Although most yarns are put in these categories, 
                 there is still " wiggle" room between thicknesses.

What if I do not have the correct weight the
 pattern calls for, Can I substitute a 
different yarn or weight?
The answer is yes, but it can be a little tricky.

Maximo is doing a lot better 
and is on the mend.
