Just curious, what yarn have you selected?

I am using the tahki yarn donegal tweed, color oatmeal, i seem to have a problem with gauge as everyone else, any suggestions.

I'm using the same yarn and had a bit of a gauge problem also. I ended up getting a gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch using Addi Turbo Natura size 8 needles and moved up one pattern size to compensate. All seems to be going well at this point. I've just started knitting the back and I'm liking the way it knits up.
