Knitting on the Autobahn
Congratulations to Cyndi, Jenn, Stephanie and Roberta for answering my European Vacation Trivia Quiz questions correctly! Cyndi and Roberta also guessed where I was "based" in Germany - a little town called Schweinfurt about 2 hours east of Frankfurt. Schwein means pig. Apparently there are wild pigs running around in the forests, although the closest we got to one was at a wildlife park. Did you know that wild pigs are quite hairy? Ewwww. Somehow their muddy enviroment and disturbing grunts didn't bother me as much as their hirsuteness.
I'm still sorting through my pictures (over 500) and deciding which to clean up for the album. This stuff takes forever! But I did want to show you that I couldn't stop knitting, even on vacation. BTW, I had absolutely no problems with the needles I brought onboard - the Brittanys and the Bryspuns. However. We carried on all the yarn I bought as padding for other items and we actually got stopped by security in Dallas-Ft. Worth because the skeins looked like wiring as the bag went through the scanners! The irony!
Until the next day in the life...
