Georgia, Sweet Georgia!
I made it home. Here's a picture of Broad street in Atlanta. Home is about another 2 1/2 hours from there. I am glad to say, I made it home all in one piece. To travel now a days, you have to be in the Airport with in 3 hours of your flight. Security has really taken the fun out of traveling. I don't think I'll be getting on a plane anytime soon. I use to love to travel, now it's just not worth all the trouble. I think I'll just try to travel all around the USA in a car or train to see what it has to offer. I know there are tons of wonderful things to see right here in the good old USA. In the knitting department I've only had time to knit socks.

Sock Week !

I made these for my Mother. This pattern is called Hedera designer Cookie And these are for a quarterly sock Knit along. It so happens
that both of these sock are from the same designer.
The light blue yarn is "Opal" and the darker yarn is "Socks that Rock yarn" called "Blue Moon" a light weight Moreno. The pattern is called "Monkey". I had taken the label off the Opal yarn so I don't remember the color name, only that it was cotton. The Monkey sock pattern is very easy and a quick pattern to knit. I plan to use it again. The next time I post anything, I will be back in the States. I think I'll miss Germany a little. I've met some really great people. Even so, I look forward to being close to my love ones back home. I use to attend a group called the "Tangle Threaders" of Fiber aficionados, who got together once a month and share projects, ideas and chats. It was a mixture of Knitters, Spinners, Weavers, Crocheter…
