While I had a layover in Philly, I did some shopping with a good friend that picked me up from the airport (I had a 5 hour layover- what else was I supposed to do?). I picked up some vintage knitting and crocheting patterns, and I'm really excited to start on one. 
For the "Lacy Evening Sweater" it calls for super fingering, 3-ply yarn. Granted, the booklet was published in 1965, but can I assume that they want me to use fingering weight yarn? The gauge it gives for size 4 needles are 6 sts = 1 inch, 19 rows = 2 in if that helps anyone.
I really want to get started on this sweater, so if anyone can help, that would be great!   Smiley

Check vintage knits.  Sometimes you can find info on older yarns there.  The 3-ply is probably a more accurate way to search.

Thanks! I actually found the yarn under medium weight. I guess now I need to figure out which (sport/DK/Wt) I need to use.   Smiley
