I've seen this type of description on some yarns - in this case they probably mean a sportweight yarn that's been worsted spun. Don't ask me what "worsted spun" means, though...I'm sure someone here...

I believe "baby" yarn is also close to sportweight. You could also just look for a yarn that's about 6 stitches per inch according to the ballband.

Is this still available? I looked at the KP site today and it wasn't listed - and it's also not in their new catalog. I'll be a little bummed if it was a one-time only thing.

I'm not sure it's the needles - I'm knitting on size 5s, and I am a pretty loose knitter. I'm anxious to hear about your experience with it, as well as how it does on a larger garment.
