Also, I am pretty new to machine knitting and don't have much knowledge of the finer yarns yet. can you describe in more common language what 2/24 and 2/17 yarn types mean? Is there a guide somewhere that tells the comparison between coned yarns used in fine and standard guage knitting?
The first number is the amount of plys used to create the yarn. The last number is the diameter of the finished strand. The higher the last number the finer the yarn. A common fingering weight yarn used on standard gauge machines is about a 2/15. 2/24 is about half the diameter of fingering weight yarn.
