No, not the one on the left with the long hair wearing a sock summit t-shirt. If you are a blog reading knitter you recognize her. I mean the other one, the one in the green sweater and short hair? Once upon a time she had a small time blog too. Maybe, now that she's been to the Sock Summit and met all sorts of rock star knitting types she'll be a blogger once more.
I mean, who could resist the lure of Meg Swansen and Amy Detjen? They were both lovely and great and I have a bad case of knitting camp wanabee.
Or Nancy Bush?
Or Janel Laidman (no picture, I was too busy knitting on Rivendell and eating chocolate to manage a picture).
Most important was time and fabulous meals with some virtual knitting friends who also happened to be great people in real life.
There might have also been some yarn purchasing, but if you think I'm going to embarrass myself by showing you pictures of the haul, you are sorely mistaken. Sorely.
I might have been so inspired by all of the new tips and techniques (all of which are applicable to all knitting, not just socks), that I cast on a pair of socks that build off off Estonian techniques that Nancy Bush was so kind to share during her class, bur with modern colors and funky patterning. You can check out the details here on Ravelry: Boxing Tradition.
If I could manage the cool photography you see in knitting books and amazing blogs I might become a knitting rock star too. Nah, but a girl can dream right?
P.S. If you get the impression I'm a midget with only one sweater, you are so right.
