weight of Aunt Lydia Shimmer

Question

Ok, I give up. What is "fine sport weight"? Is that some sub-class between fingering and sport?

 

I picked up five balls on clearance at WM.

See this site...on different yarn weights. Or this one...on measuring a specific yarn to figure what it's weight is (by wrapping yarn around a ruler).

 

Hope those help!

Thanks for that yarn-wrapping link, that's pretty cool.

 

I think some patterns and yarn companies refer to US #3 yarn weight as sport weight, and #2 as fine sport weight, which is a little confusing. The US yarn standards only refer to #2 as sport weight.
