And the Sock is over the Pond!

This cuff came all the way from Memphis, TN !

And look what else was in the package!

The BBQ Sauce came just in time for Grill Season here in Germany. I am so excited, thank you thank you!!!!

I was especially interested to see the Trekking used for the cuff. Despite the fact that Trekking is made not too far from where I live (Clue #1), I have never happened across it. It was a bit thicker than the Opal and Regina I am used to using. A little internet research yielded some Ombre colorways are just gorgeous.

So, what did I do first: I knit the first 2 repeats immediately. Monkey is a very clever pattern, not really that complicated to remember but a very nice effect. Maybe I will have to make one of my own.

Staying with the blue theme, I used some leftover Opal Handpainted

and finished:

Now off to see the sights and some more clues!
