Sock Summit Portland Oregon
6000 rabid & ravishing sock knitters converged at the Sock Summit for classes, demonstrations, contests and shopping. The classes were taught by knitistas, gurus, authors, and the goddesses of the fiber craft world. I won a class from one of the vendors! So my Saturday morning was spent in the 3-D Embellishments for your socks class which was quite good fun.
The sock photos here are all little baby socks made from my Tiny Treasures pattern with added embellishments. The pink and blue pairs were sent to the Mittens 4 Akkol program for the baby orphanage in Kazahstan. The little green pair were knit for Carol's friends Joyce and Guy who are expecting a grandbaby soon. I love how the colors of the sock yarn matched up with some of Carols flowers on her back deck!
That poor women, Carol. You all should have known better than to let her run loose with that much sock yarn around. Shame on both of you. LOL Renate
I wish I had known you were there, I would have loved to meet you. the marketplace was wonderful and I bought way too much yarn but it was just sinful.
wow, how funny!! I was just looking at my copy of the same picture at Sock Summit and then to come here and see it again..... aren't we so cute!!!! What a fun time!!Post a Comment
