Did you know that when I said I would catch up this weekend, I hadn't yet heard that I was able to move off the waitlist for Anne Hanson's Sweater Fitness class at A Verb for Keeping Warm on Saturday? More on that, but essentially, I didn't catch up. Oops. I'm going to attempt to catch up a bit with this post. Here goes...
Did you know that there were sheepies at Sock Summit?
And super-fast knitters? The wonderful Deb Barnhill won (she's on the right next to Stephanie).
And lots of friends that I wish I had had more time to hang out with. Note, these pictures were all taken after the market closed on Sunday. How we all survived I just don't know?
Did you know that inside this voodoo donut guy is raspberry jelly....hehehhe?
Did you know about these two, new-to-me, awesome indie dyers?
Little Red Bicycle Penny Farthing Sock, in colorway Ethereal. Isn't it just gorgeous? I had wanted to make sure to stop by this lovely booth because Didi, the super nice dyer behind Little Red Bicycle, lives just about 30 minutes away from me. Uh-oh!
This is a gorgeous skein of Alpha B Yarn Luxe B. It is one of the yarns that Debbi knit her gorgeous new pattern Lucy with.
Did you know that Anne Hanson and Cookie A. are pretty awesome? I know, I know. You knew. I knew too, but it was so nice to hear them speak about their design process on Friday evening. Plus I was able to catch up a bit more with Katharine, another fabulous teacher from Sock Summit.
Did you know that I have never knit an adult sweater that is not knit from the top-down in one piece? But after Anne's fabulous class and looking through her gorgeous sample knits...
I think I'm ready to take the plunge!! Sprossling here I come! Now I just need to find some Plucky Primo for it! Yeah, so should have figured this out before Sock Summit as I don't have a sweaters worth of Primo in my stash! But I think I can change that!
I hope you all have had an awesome weekend! I know I have!!
