Sock Summit

Yes, Sock Summit is this week. Yes, it is only about 100 miles from where I live. And no, I'm not going. My polite excuses? I'm working and it's too expensive. The real reason, though, is that it would be overwhelming and I don't deal well with overwhelming anymore. We're talking about dozens of classes from sock knitting designers and gurus and legends like Cookie A and Nancy Bush, Priscilla Gibson-Roberts,Lucy Neatby, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, Meg Swansen, and Anna Zilboorg; a panel discussion to die for, book signings, a huge marketplace with everything related to knitting socks --what's the limit on this credit card again?-- a reception, a sock hop and more.

It is the Woodstock for sock knitters and I'm going to miss it. But then I missed Woodstock in 1967 too.

  1. I agree with you about the overwhelming factor of it all, but if I were 100 miles away I'd go just to walk through the marketplace. I might even go with the intention not to buy anything, but just to see all the gorgeous yarn, that would be worth it for me.
