Craft Yarn Council's Yarn Weight System Chart

Standard Yarn Weight System & Recommended hook/needle sizes

Very helpful link for recommended knitting needle sizes and crochet hook sizes for each weight of yarn, plus the general gauge you will get with each.  Also helpful to know if you want to break the "rules"... then you know what the recommended size is for each yarn and you can go up, or down a size or two, depending upon the effect you are aiming to get with your project.
