Let Me Sock it to You

We're back.

Safe and Sound.

And... overflowing with sock yarn and sock patterns. (You should see my kitchen table. I must keep the blinds closed so the neighbors don't think I've totally gone off the deep end.)

I shall update you throughout the week as I decompress and sort through all of my class knitting and yarn purchasing.

I will tell you though- it was an absolute blast.
A ridiculously wonderful blast.

My highlight?
Let me share.

Picture this if you will- sitting in a room, listening to Meg Swanson (my new hero) teach her mother's Wearable Art Stocking only to have Barbara Walker in the back of the room.
But that's not all! The best part?
When Meg kindly asked Barbara if she was the one who invented SSK.
The answer? Yes.
Meg's assistant teared up.
I kid you not.
I think I might have too.
Or, maybe it was just dry eyes from convention centre air.

And Portland?
Good city.

Better doughnuts.

I sure do love myself a Vanilla Dip doughnut during my mid-afternoon low blood sugar moment.

Voodoo doughnuts.

I dig.
