Surviving Sock Camp

It sounds like a vacation.

It looks like it may be a relaxing, peaceful week of knitting.

But it is not.

It is more like boot camp.

Where the requirements involve knitting, yarn, silliness, late nights, bacon at breakfast every day, classes, dessert with every meal, awesome awesome people, honey badgers, Twilight and Glee watching, and laughing with some of my best friends.

I'm still recovering from the week.

Seriously.

Where else do you get to play Knitting Jeopardy?

Or Knitting Boggle?

Or claim to proudly be a Jubjub all week?

Where learning to spin involves hula-hooping?

And Anna Zilboorg literally teaches you to spin? Or in my case, attempts to teach me to spin :)

There was a tea party.

And silly hats.

And some things which are better left unexplained.

Sock camp. Boot camp. No matter what you call it, it was amazing!

A bit like being in Wonderland!

Happy happy sock camping!

Is there anything better than convening with knitting/spinning/crafting friends? NO!

It looks like a terrific time was had by all!

It WAS so much fun. By the way, I have a little video of you learning to spin. :) Wish I could have sat at your table more often. SOME year we should be in the same tribe, right?

That looks like so much fun! I confess the socks on the table legs are pure genius - must make those asap.

Hope you recover soon!

It was great to see you again at camp ...sorry we were not in the same tribe, though. I am still trying to recover - came home to 2 straight days of watching grandson #2 and I am still pooped!!
