Sock Summit....The Goodies!

I'm home! Sock Summit was absolutely amazing!! I am still on a yarn and knitty friend high (well, a bit exhausted too!!). One of the best parts for me was getting to spend so much time with my BFF (aka Debbi or ST-2 or Cockeyed)! She and Debra coordinated all of the vendors and the marketplace information booth and all of the fabulous daily drawings, and so much more! And I loved helping them during setup and in between my classes!!

One of the fun parts was helping to check in the daily drawings donations. The vendors were so amazing!! There were TONS of prizes!! That's how I discovered two of my favorites from the marketplace....Queen Bee Creations and Kitchen Sink Dyeworks!

I certainly had a blue theme going! Another cute bag from Good to Be Girl and gorgeous gorgeous yarn from Kitchen Sink Dyeworks.

My new stuff was put to good use right away! And yes, that's another Cotty sock on the needles! I was thrilled that so many people showed me their Cotty socks at the Sock Summit! I wish I had thought to take a picture of them all! It really made my day whenever someone commented on how they loved their Cotty socks or were working on a pair!!

There were a lot more goodies, but I'm going to spread sock summit out a bit over the next week or so! That way I won't miss it so much!!

Happy Knitting!
