At last!

Well, I have been slacking on my promised post with more about Sock Summit. The problem, you see (other than all the secret knitting keeping me busy) is that I have camnesia. It’s a horrible disease where I bring my camera to Sock Summit yet take pretty much no pictures. It’s true, I have a couple of pictures of my socks in progress and a few more of food. That’s it.

So I borrowed some from Shannon Okey.

Here’s Shannon’s picture of me in the Cooperative Press booth. It’s not a great picture of me, but I spent lots of time in the booth, and I helped hang up all those socks. :) Plus, it proves I was actually at Sock Summit.


The Monday after Sock Summit, Shannon and I headed to Knit Picks where we got to hang out, see pretty yarn, and make some videos. Here’s me about to be interviewed by Stacey:


Of course, my eyes are closed. Maybe there’s a reason there aren’t more pictures of me at Sock Summit!

And further proof… my friend noticed that I am visible in Harry’s (Franklin’s ball of sock yarn) Sock Summit adventure video. I’m trying to squeeze out of the Goth Socks booth at about 2:14 in the video.

So now that you believe that I was there, here’s what I got…


Just in case you were wondering, I still like blue.

Canon Hand Dyes Charles Sock Yarn

2 skeins of Three Fates Yarns Tethys Sock

superwash fiber from MacKintosh Yarns

a Magic Ball from Sophie’s Toes

Fiber Optic Yarns Foot Notes

Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga

And the Goth Socks:


The two on the right are the same, I’m hoping to knit some gothy knee socks.

While I was photographing yarn, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of some of the yarns that are going to be in my book – some of them are from Sock Summit, some aren’t.


It’s not a complete list, since some (strangely the warmer colors!) are currently being knit. But the ones pictured here are (L to R):

Now back to knitting!

Feet and Books and Hats, oh my!

As some of you may have seen over on knitgrrl today, I’m going to be putting out a sock book with Cooperative Press. As part of that we’re trying to gather some information on shoe size and foot measurements, as well as pictures of size 8 feet. (Although we only need photos for size 8, measurements are appreciated for all sizes! Even my bitty little feet are going in the data.)

If you’d be willing to help, check out the survey, and thanks in advance!

As far as hats, well that’s totally unrelated.


Pattern: Odessa by Grumperina
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Luscious in My Blue Heaven
Started: 9/28/10
Finished: 10/11/10

As you can see I left off the beads. The hat is for a friend’s sister, who has recently started chemotherapy. A knitting friend who went through chemo last year told me that her most comfortable hat was 100% silk, so when I was at Oregon Flock and Fiber I picked up this skein.

Now to knit away on the Candy Corn Socks… I need those for Halloween!
