Yeah!. I finally got the new circular needles to use for the SockaPaltwoza socks. The needles are Eur 2.5mm thick (instead of U.S. 2.25mm thick).
I checked my gauge on the 3/4 sock knitted so far to compare to a swatch with the new needles.and ... Gulp. It's a whole stitch off per inch.
After much consideration I've decided to alter the pattern to fit my gauge. The two partial socks will be frogged and redone. Oh well. Live and learn. I think I need a break from this project for a while... :-(
