Finally, I was able to get to Blogspot. Such a nefarious place we all know. Just ready to subvert the masses in China and force them to confront the knitting accomplished by the rest of the world. I actually am not sure if they always have the sites blocked, or if it was special, just for me.
Anyway – the package arrived in St Paul, Minnesota safe and sound. Go see!
I had a great time planning them out and now have several kind hearted and dedicated test knitters who are helping me turn this into a real pattern. I just have to find a software that actually lets me chart what I need and has a decent legend. Hopefully I will not wind up buying all three major ones out there, but each has some good points and some real limitations.
Otherwise – we found that Lufthansa runs the “found on airplane” collection for Frankfurt Airport.
Ever try to describe hand knit socks, especially pattern color to a non-knitter who is then going to explain it to someone over the phone who is making a record. He is great, but my DH does not speak “socken” although his German is almost flawless. I don’t even come close, but I am willing to take suggestions and words from others.
In desperation, I am going to cast on something else.
