*shakes in corner* So...many...terms....I don't understand!  Save me!

OK, so I worked out about the yarn size (I don't know what any of those yarn terms mean, but I think I get the relative yarn size, sort of), but please tell me matching hook to yarn is simple...  Like, there's numbers on both that you need to look at and compare.

Thanks for all the help, guys, I'll hit the Lincraft store.

Oh, and this might be a really stupid question (told you I was a newbie): Knitting yarn and crocheting yarn, are they the same thing?
Oh I'm sorry! I just reread my post and it's awful... If you look on the yarn label it will usually suggest a needle size (and hook size? I don't crochet). It sounds to me like you need a good book on the basics! I like the Stitch 'n' Bitch book for knitting and I know there's a crochet one from the same series called The Happy Hooker, maybe that (or other beginner book) would be a good place to start.

"I have in this War a burning private grudge - which would probably make me a better soldier at 49 than I was at 22: against that ruddy little ignoramus Adolf Hitler... Ruining, perverting, misapplying, and making for ever accursed, that noble northern spirit, a supreme contribution to Europe, which I have ever loved, and tried to present in its true light." J.R.R. Tolkein
