Sock Summit....Day One!

I'm a bit tired already but the first official day of Sock Summit ROCKED!!! Well, with these ladies running it, how could it not?

Before I jump into Sock Summit, I have to share the note that Christy's daughter left under my door last night.

Seriously cute??!!! I had a great few days relaxing and visiting with Christy and the kids before Sock Summit!

Yesterday and today I helped with Vendor Registration! Fun stuff....got to check in the daily door prizes (lots and lots of awesome giveaways!!!), help with the silent auction, etc.

Here's the line forming....open open open!

I finally finally got to meet Stacey!!! And Turtlegirl too (hope she has a cute picture of us! I still need to get one!). Lots of other knitty friends too but the camera wasn't around!

I hope to have more pictures later! Having a blast! Oh, the yarn....its all gorgeous, but one of my new favorites is here! I got two of her merino/cashmere/nylon base yarns...yummy!!

Happy Sock Summit!!!

I can't believe how big sock summit is! There would be nothing of this size in Australia for knitting, let alone just for sock knitting!

Jackie said...

I'm green with envy!

I hope you're having a GREAT time!

Susie said...

Stacey said...

Day one looks like sooo much fun! Hugs to you! Wish I was there but I'll enjoy it vicariously through everyones blogs.

I am hopelessly succumbing to my jealousy. I'm buying some yarn today, dammit, even though I need more yarn like I need a third boob! Seriously, I hope you have a wonderful time, and I hope Sock Summit goes even better than the organizers dreamed of. Maybe they'll be crazy enough to do it again and I'll try once more for some of those amazing classes. Please, please, please convince them all of their hard work is worth it and they should bring this show to Denver next year. You can use my guest room!

Josie said...

Oh, I am so jealous! It looks like you're having a such a fantastic time! I'm living vicariously through your posts and pictures this time, but, maybe next time...... Have fun!
