OH! Good question, because it took me a while to realize that on the wrapper of the yarn, it usually says the size knitting needles or crochet hook you need, and some even tell you the guage you should get too, so like size G hook  10 sts X 4 rows = 1 square inch (Or whatever) so that also can give you a 'goal' tension too. I would even maybe suggest buying a yarn that has all that info. There are some really inexpensive yarns like Caron Simply Soft (I think) that have this on the label. Smiley

Please use the Help Desk for moderator questions.  I'm not currently available full-time.  Thanks!

I'd love to send you some hand spun for a poppet!

Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect!

This is so true!  When you try really hard to get it right, it takes forever at first, but eventually your fingers start to remember what to do and it all gets easier and your stitches start to look consistent.
