The Sock has Left the Building

The Sock Summit has come & gone, and I feel like a little bit of me is missing now. For so long I have been preparing for this wonderful event & now it is over. Kinda crazy. None of this would have been possible without the help of a whole whack of people, especially our little corner of it. I am so thankful to every one of you that helped out*. From skeining, to labeling, to feeding me, to helping me back up my crazy trailer, to loading & unloading, to design input, to... I could not have done any of it without my wonderful friends & family. Thank you.

So... wanna see what we all helped create?

We started out with a blank canvas,

and worked to create something beautiful.

After the booth was set up we went to a dinner hosted by Lantern Moon at the Kennedy School.

Wednesday we got up bright and early to go to a class taught by Barbara Walker.

After class I went back to the booth,

and waited for the Market to open. We had a crazy busy two hours, then went to the Opening Reception.

Friday morning I went to Cat Bordhi's class.

then talked in the Color Me Crazy booth. Sorry no pic.
Saturday morning I went to Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's class, again sorry no pic.

Then did a spinning demo.

Sunday morning I had a class with Nancy Bush. Who I have to say is the nicest, most humble, and incredible teacher.

Then after the market, went to the Luminary Panel.

Sorry about the grainy pics. I had to do some editing to get them to come out.

We went back to the market place after the Luminary Panel,

and were one of the last ones to break down.

One of the Canadian vendors & their crew helped us pack up the truck. Which was especially cool since we were short handed.

Now I am home again, and not quite sure what to do with myself. But it sure is nice to spend time with my hubby and animals. I'd like to say I don't have much to do, but that just isn't true. I have a full schedule of massages, am preparing to send out the Sock Summit special orders, and am meeting with LYSO to carry my yarn. Oh, and there is the constant updating of the Etsy & Hyena Cart shops. Yeah, not sure what to do with myself. Right...

*A special thank you to my husband Kiel, Diane, Susan, Wendy, Darin, Yelley & Wendi.

So glad you had such a good time. Loved hearing all about it from you and Sue the other day. Maybe someday, if they have another one, I can go too and I will volunteer to help you with your booth. And, don't worry...YOU will always find something to do!!! ;)
