ETA: As per Carol's request, I've included the weight of the yarn as printed on the label. I will be weighing more sock yarn after they've come out of quarantine (aka the deep freezer). I have a theory about the North American vs. European yarn weights but I want to finish weighing all my yarn first.

I think that I might weigh all my sock yarns this weekend and post the results.

The N American companies seem much more careful about underweight skeins than the british ones!

Just came over from Polly's blog. Thanks for weighing all yours. I think it's really interesting. Could you also post what the skeins were supposed to be along with what they actually are?

I had to start weighing my yarn after reading this, and it looks as though you got my missing Cherry Tree Hill!

My scale is accurate to an eighth of an ounce, and the CTH came up a quarter of an ounce short. Given that our humidity is a mere 21% here, that seems like a big deal.
