Sock update!

Hi Everyone!
I have been in Germany for a week or so now and I'm loving it!
Unfortunately, the Internet here is on and off, mostly off so I am behind on my knitting updates. I have been doing a lot of Knitting. I have started lots of socks for SOS.
Left to right: Vine lace Stockings in Fearless Fibers, Pomatomus in Socks that rock, and Opal, thinking about becoming Jaywalkers.
I finished the top band and put in the elastics for the vine lace stockings on the plane over here before my knitting needles where all taken away from me in the Dublin airport! Beware, when flying through Dublin, NO knitting needles, they are very dangerous weapons! ;)
I joke now, but at the time I was not a happy camper. Thank goodness I was able to check an extra bag and thus save my options set from doom!
I also had a sock nightmare this week.
Remember these?? My smoke ring socks started in April. I finally had a chance to turn the heel and guess what! I ran out of yarn. I know, I should have known. Koigu skeins are known to be on the small side and Gummibaer's feet are huge, but I thought I would be OK because he likes his socks ankle length. I was wrong, I don't even have enough yarn to finish the heel flap
I guess the only thing to do now is pray to the knitting Gods for forgiveness and some more Koigu in the same colorway. I don't have the ball bands here in Germany so I don't know the colorway number. So the socks are in the back and bottom of my knitting basket hiding from my wrath until such time as they can be dealt with.

In other news, I found a yarn store here in Germany! Stay tuned.

This watch has been trouble from the start if you check all replica watches stores to you. I am very disappointed in your customer service by suggesting that I should pay shipping fees. I am an honest rolex replica and I am sure you are a decent company that is why we came to you for my 75th. birthday. I have been told by rolex replica sale store company that I can make a charge back against you which at this stage I am reluctant to do and given you every chance of rectifying this problem. I am really sorry to inform you that the winder on the replacement hublot replica watches has failed. I have taken it to a small watch repairer who says the screws on the winder are no good. I am deeply disappointed that this should happen again. Whilst I am sure that you are also disappointed with the tag heuer replica uk after trying to help with this problem I am now left with a problem.
