Oddly enough, I had cast on the original version in the correct needle size, or so I thought, because I swear I used size 2 16-inch circs. Except I could not find them when I went back to my needle bag for a second go. I thought maybe I'd managed the next size up, but when I tried with this yarn, I couldn't join the circle. Very strange.
This is Classic Elite MountainTop Vista, in the Wolf colorway. (The entire line is natural, undyed wool.) When I found this at the story (at a really great sale, so I have two other colorways as well), it looked the same size as the Cascade 220 Sport I almost bought, so I assume it was sport weight as well, but it's categorized as worsted on Ravelry. (I had no reception in Center Harbor, so I couldn't check there. Believe me, I tried.) So hopefully that doesn't end up being a bad thing.
