I have got the latest vogue knitting magazine and just love the poncho pattern, it is knitted in Patons classic merino wool. I am wondering what equivalent is available here in Australia. I looked it up on the net and the tension given was 20sts = 10cm on 4.25mm needles. The pattern is knitted on 4.5mm with a tension of 28 sts = 10cm in cable pattern. If anybody knows anything about PCMW leave a message. Also if anyone has a US wool store they can recommend I would love to know of any. I have bought wool from overseas before but they charge $35 US postage which is way to expensive if you haven't got anyone to share the postage with. I have wondered if Bendigo Aran knits up similar, the tension for that is 19sts = 10cm on 4.5mm needles.
I have spent today on opal#7, and I am up to the foot. I will be watching the tennis tonight (go Lleyton) so hope to get it pretty well finished.
