Hi Guys,

I'm about to finish my first scarf and my first hat.
I'm looking forward to my next challenge. I'm a total beginner, but I like challenging and interesting patterns.

Yarn in Salzburg, Austria?

Hey everyone.

I will be going to Salzburg, Austria for 3 weeks in February. Anyone know of any good yarn shops there or other knitting sites I should see? I tried google'ing but nothing came up.

decreasing question

I'm doing the fisherman's hat from the book "Knitting with Balls" (knitting for men)
I'm supposed to start decreasing, assuming that I have 72 cast-on stitches in a certain pattern

Size 8 project

I am going to be flying soon and can't bring my recent project with me since they are on metal needles.
It seems the safest thing to do is to bring bamboo circular needles.

Are there any issues with security if you fly with your needles?
