Germany, the US, Switzerland...
I am a US transplant living in Heidelberg Germany (courtesy of the US government). My DH works in Switzerland and spends 3-5 days a week near Zürich. So if we need the socks to travel, he can always mail them out from theren.
I have been knitting socks since ~1990 (give or take) and have been on email since 1986 (yes, good old ASCII and arpa.net) and general knitting a long time before that.
My preference is for pix here, I would rather not wander over to another program. If you need Vancouver in the process, I will be there 19-25 May and could let the socks have a visit as well.
Looking forward to this!
