I tested on Genographic project and got K1A28 on my mtDNA. From what I know about my grandmother line, they where" blonde and blue-eyed " and lived in Georgia (as ethnic greeks). Surname where Ferikidis from grandmothers mothers father.
I have read about the Ashkenazi factor in K1a-group, is there sufficient data about K1a28 for this claim?

No. Only three of the twelve or so subgroups of mtDNA K are indicators of likely Ashkenazi ancestry: K1a1b1a, K1a9 and K2a2a. If you have any other variety of mtDNA K, you don't have any evidence of Jewish ancestry on your direct maternal line.

Over at Family Tree DNA there are not many K1a28, probably because it is a Near Eastern branch and not so many people from there have tested. https://www.familytreedna.com/public/mtDNA_K/default.aspx?section=mtresults
