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.

2 skeins of Three Fates Yarns Tethys Sock

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!
