Recommended gauge is 7 st/1" on a size 3 needle.

Can someone tell me what kind of project this works well for before the ebay auction for this YUMMY looking yarn is over in a half hour?

Love ya. ;)

Fair Isle Sweaters, socks, anything really, if it calls for a thin yarn. It's quite thin.

Thank you much, Ingrid. Don't know when I'll be ready for that, so maybe I'll pass.

What is Roving (as mentioned on the yarn strand chart, size 6 bulky)?

Roving is yarn that is pretty much unspun. Very poofy, no real twists in it, not used very commonly.

Nah--I've just been around this stuff for quite a while. ;)
