Mom's Birthday Socks Finished and Appreciated

Mom is one of my most appreciative knitting recipients.

Yesterday was her birthday and guess what she got - a pair of birthday socks.

She also got copies of a ship manifest from Ellis Island, the passenger records recorded on their ship, the Belgenland, when baby Mom and her mother came to this country from Switzerland to join my grandfather.

Anyone can go to the Ellis Island web site and search the 25 million immigrant records for their relatives.

Here's the official sock shot.
