This was the first time Charlie saw birthday candles being extinguished.

I Found a Knitter in Salzburg

Eighteen pairs of socks to knit for the family for Christmas. Two months to go!

We communicated easily.  A fellow knitter.

I asked if I might photograph her and she agreed. I wish I’d taken more than one shot.

Thank you.  It was so fun to find her, knitting.  I’ll send her a copy.
