I'll have to see if I can find that pattern. I loved machine knitting house socks for gifts (flat seamed socks) so hand knitting some worsted socks in the round would be AWESOME!
Isn't that often the case with Christmas gifts? From time to time, I enjoy going to my home'town' of New Orleans for a visit. Now that I'm older I have no desire to move back. Is your hometown in TN too? That's a beautiful state.
I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get your Christmas wish if not this year then in the future!
No I grew up south of the South Bend Indiana area in a little town that was very much like Mayberry actually. The house I want is in South Bend though about 3 blocks from my best friend (who has been my best friend since 7th grade so that would be 45 years ago) and my son, dil and one of my grandchildren the other one lives here in memphis, my sister and a couple nieces and nephews live there too. We lived there after my husband retired from the Navy and we moved because of job issues. So, if we were rich, I would love to live back up there again even with all the snow.
