If you know even the slightest bit about knitting or crochet, you’re most likely familiar with worsted weight yarn. Also known as ‘afghan,’ ‘aran,’ or simply ‘medium,’ this seemingly do-it-all weight of yarn can be used for a variety of projects. This yarn is easy to work with and knits up quickly without too much bulk. But exactly what is this weight of yarn and why is it almost every yarn enthusiast’s old standby? We break it down for you below.

Great Balls of Wool: Edward's First Project

Edward showing off his very, very first knitting project (instructed by Miruh). The yarn is Sirdar Family Worsted. It's perfect!! He will be graduating soon to "Sockistas!" Of course, Edward is skilled with acupuncture needles - although we're not sure if he can actually knit with them. But how about screwdrivers? Kevin posted this photo to the Powell River Yarn and Fibre Facebook group...he'd spotted it on the Do Ewe Knit page.
