Thanks salmonmac I'll do that.
I thought he had bought me the yarn, he had bought me the needles and had stopped at a friends place on the way home and his buddies wife gave him the yarn ...BAH ! and really old yarn from what I can gather off the internet, it is Eaton Lady Fair Sayelle Knitting Worsted 50g Dupont Orlon Acrylic, I thought it was new because it still has original wrapper.
It says tension 5 sts 6 1/2 rows = 1 inch
on # 4.50mm (7) Needle
Jan I have no idea what yarn weight means?
No idea if that helps, I told him no more accepting yarn from anyone,have enough fun trying to learn how to knit never mind trying to figure what the yarn is!
Thanks suzeeq I wrote that down do I wouldnt forget and try that in a bit.
