|Wheel of Socks|
On the way out of the steaming and balling room, I pointed to a large garbage bag into which the workers were placing odds and ends of yarn from the various processes there, and said, "THAT is the bag I want!", and Felix went off into the depths of the factory and came back carrying a bag for me! He said they give them away to schools, usually, but I could have one since I asked. : ) It's just a lot of very short bits and pieces, but I think there may be enough length to make some MonsterSocks.
Oh...I bought a few skeins of yarn, too...
Here are some views of the town of Hechingen :

As we continued, I was treated to my first view of the Bavarian Alps. I have seen mountains, the American Rockies, Great Smoky Mountains, the Ozarks, but the Alps are different from all of them. They were simply breathtaking.
Saturday: Dachau and Munich
