I am still trying to learn knitting terms and wonder why yarn comes in a hank that has to be wound when it could come that way from the beginning? There must be a reason... And what is the difference between a hank and a skein?
What is the meaning of worsted weight, lace weight and fingering weight? It's all a bit confusing. Or where can I go to find out? I looked in the glossary to no avail.
