My friend Stephania from Three Fates Yarns and I met up at Madrona. She gave me some of this new sock base and asked if I could knit a quick sample sock. Of course I could! The pattern is Bubbles by Cookie A.
We met up a few weeks later for the Rose City Yarn Crawl (in Portland, OR). I took the train down and used my knitting time wisely.
We had a great time visiting all 11 stores, seeing a lot of familiar faces, and battling with huge knitting needles.
I had the sock done by the end of the day. I believe I even did the Kitchener stitch at a sushi restaurant.
