Thank you "Strega"for your question. I have been knitting, crocheting since before I could spell either. All we had was Baby yarn, Sport and wool--no acrylic or fancy yarns.
Now don't understan the DK's I even see it in baby yarns. I was taught by my Irish mother and do what is now called the "continel" knitting. Tried wrapping the yarn around the needle and knitting in the front of the stitch--can't do it plus it takes longer to do. Looks just like my friends stitches when done.

Hi All! I am "Strega" and live in Farmington, NY. I am trying to get back to knitting and crocheting after many years. Forgive my ingorance, but what does DK, DK yarn and Aran mean?

Also, what is the trick of using two yarns at once?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
