I have a stupid question. :teehee: What is the difference between sock yarn, fingering weight yarn,and lace weight yarn? Is there a difference? I've looked at them online and they all kind of look the same. Without being able to touch them or see them in person it's kind of hard to tell, and I haven't really found anything helpful online, either.
I really want to make the Jeanie wrap from the Winter 2007 issue of Knitty, but the yarn called for is a little out of my price range right now. I've found several really pretty (and affordable) yarns out there, but I'm not quite sure what I can substitute and what I can't. If anybody has any insight, I would be really grateful.
