Where can I learn about different types of yarn, what they are best suited for, weights, etc. I think I need to know more about my tools instead of relying on what is available at the craft store. I would like to start designing.

Hi Rebecca, I actually go over some of that in my beginner classes, such as Crafty Crochet Embellishments. There's also a class called Know Your Yarn that is geared to knitters but will probably be helpful.

While you can buy books or use the library, it's easier and cheaper to get online information on yarn types, weights, etc online, do a search engine search, or a youtube search, you can get websites and / or videos that way, on anything yarn related actually. More will be found in a search engine on yarn than , say, patterns tho. I bookmark to save this info to print or just open the file for future reference any time needed!
