I'm afraid I don't know about the wool but with the needles, if the pattern doesn't specify alternative measurements in millimetres that would tell you which to get, then I would say to go for the...

I think there will probably be a video on here showing how to pick up stitches, it's best if you can see it as it makes sense more when you can see it! What you need to do is insert your needle...

Olson, what everyone else has said is correct with regard to knitting two then purling two, and reversing it on the other side (so that you get stripes two 'bumps' wide with gaps where there are no...
