Hey! It's my first post! Yay!
So, lucky newbie that I am, I received a bin full of yarn from someone who heard that I was learning to crochet. It has been great for learning the stitches and for some small projects (two pairs of legwarmers, fingerless gloves, a couple of hats and a pair of ponchos...) but now that I am looking for more challenging projects, I don't know what to do with the yarn I have.
I have no idea how to tell what type or weight it is, or what hook best suits it. So I don't seem to be able to use it for a specific pattern.
What do you suggest? I have enough yarn to keep me busy for quite some time...
Thanks for the advice!
