That's the thing, I'm using it for longies and for some reason I think I'm getting 4.5 per inch on size 9's, but that can't be right.<br>
I normally knit middle of the road, not too tight, not too loose.<br><br>
Have you used it for longies before? If so, what needles do you suggest?

I adore this wool for longies, it's my favorite <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> The first pair I made I used sz 7 needles, 4st/inch. Now I use sz 9's, 3.5 st/inch. I like both, the 7's are naturally a little tighter but I think either one works just fine and I prefer 9's 'cause they're quicker <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> You're using circulars, right? 'Cause I find my gauge is a bit tighter on dpn's.
