Anyway, I finished the pair of socks I needed those needles for. Or, almost - just have to weave the ends in to finish. So, I had my needles back to finish the stripped pair! I took them for a 5 mile test hike the other day and they are cozy! A little looser than I am used too because I did not do my stadard K3, P1 rib down to the toe. A rib gives you a better fitting sock. But, I am thinking that after washing they might be a bit snugger.

The weather here in Austria continues to be unusually warm. We took a drive outside the city today. At 1550 meters, this area is popular for day trip skiers. There were some families at the restaurant who had booked their Christmas break vacation here for skiing. That is not going to happen anytime soon. It was 3C up there.
