Swiss Sheep Socks

I bought this sock yarn when I visited Switzerland in 2010. When I started knitting these socks this week, the yarn reminded me of the day we took a road trip through the Swiss Alps. One of the passes we traveled through was so high up that we were literally in the clouds. At one point we had to stop suddenly to let a cute hairy sheep cross the road. For some reason, these socks remind me of that fuzzy sheep in the middle of the road.  So I'm calling these my Swiss Sheep Socks. 

One day I want to go back to Switzerland.  My granddaughter is now two, and I miss her, my daughter, and son-in-law.  While spending my time knitting this yarn, I think of them, pray for them, miss them, dream of the day I can go visit them again in Zurich.
