Another favorite part of Sock Summit, the friends!!! It was awesome to finally meet some people whose blogs I've been reading for years like Stacey and Turtlegirl!!

Cristi & me

My favorite Portland LYS, Twisted, now has the cutest little baby model! So glad to meet Hazel and I just love her mommy, Shannon!

Christy and I setting a world record!!! (that's right Christy, I linked to your blog in the hopes that you get back to it!!)

My SnB peeps! Cupcakefaerie (the best roomie ever!!), me, Ilikecake, and SnBLeslie!

My one regret is not having more time to spend with everyone and to take more pictures!! But I have the best memories from this weekend!!!

Oh, and I bought some new friends for my stash.....

Socks that Rock Rare Gems!!


This Rare Gem is probably my favorite yarn purchase from Sock Summit!!! Just perfect!

Happy Sock Summit Recovery Week!

I am coveting that turquoise Rare Gems!! Gorgeous. I'm so envious of all the Sock Summit attendees, but I've enjoyed reading all the blog entries and seeing pictures. I'm glad you had such a good time!

Wonderful pictures - I had a lot of fun reading all about it. Next time I am there for sure!

That last rare gem is totally dreamy.

I think you did well on the rare gems! With all of them that you had to touch, I bet it was sooo hard to leave them!
