I’ve been trying to find cool patterns for about 6 balls of bulky yarn I have lying around my stash. And it’s frustrating trying to search when the term “bulky” can describe such a wide range of gauges.

Wouldn’t it be cool if gauge descriptions were standardized–i.e. always stated in 10 cm. square with a specific syntax, so when you were surfing the web for patterns for a certain yarn, you could just google a gauge and bring up a list of patterns? Conceivably, with XML, there could be metadata tags specific to knitting and crochet that would allow for even more robust searching…
