let me ask those with more linen stitch experience if anyone here knows...would you recommend using a thinner yarn, like a light worsted, since linen stitch knits up densely?
No, use a heavier weight, and in my experience, it doesn't eat much more than regular stockinette stitch. You're only knitting ½ row at a time, but it's still knitting stockinette for the most part.

I used worsted gaia (which is like sport weight IMO) and with 88sts on the needle I ended up getting 6.25spi for a 16" hip on 10.5" needles. It was supposed to be a 18-20 hip. So it's taking forever.

I really want to do linen stitch on targhee or cestari, or even bulky anything so at least it goes faster.

Dev are you still here? Do you have measurements for me?

What do they hope daycare will help? You sound like you're feeling better
