Sock Summit!

I have had such an awesome time the last few days in Portland and technically, Sock Summit hasn't even officially begun!!  I arrived late Monday night and yesterday Erica and I ventured to Twisted, my favorite Portland LYS! 

I just love everything about their store, from their awesome friendly staff and customer service, to the wall of socks, to the yarns, to the lovely group of people knitting!

Did I show you my finished Dancette?  I don't think I did.  I love it!  I'm so excited for this pattern to be released this weekend!

We ran into Michelle, of PDXKnitterati, and she was so sweet to drop us off at an awesome restaurant, Lucca.  Dinner was To. Die. For.  We are still trying to figure out how to go back.

Grilled peaches

After dinner we made a quick stop at Voodoo Donuts.  We were too full to eat them then, but the maple bacon bar was enjoyed this morning for breakfast!

Don't worry, we passed up the $5 bucket of day old doughnuts.  Still not sure why though. hehehe

Today was a busy, exciting day and it ended with a fabulous teachers' dinner.  I am so humbled and honored to be teaching here and can't wait for my class tomorrow!  The dead sexy heels are ready to go.

Break a leg, Carrie! Say hi to everyone from me. Your Dancette is gorgeous. Love the muted grey amidst the blue.

Seeing your pattern knit up as a store sample must be thrilling!

I so wish I could be at Sock Summit, taking your class. Have a great time!
