All socks, all the time…

Or maybe it just feels that way! I’ve finished two of the three sample socks for Sock Summit. Do you think I’ll make it by tomorrow? I’m helping Lorajean set up the Knitted Wit booth in the afternoon, and these samples and my patterns will be there, too. Come see us in booth 223!

samples

These are my Seafoam Sock, Zigzag Lace Pedi Sock, and Entrelac Sock. And the great thing about knitting samples? I only have to knit one of each. No second sock syndrome here.

A couple cool sock-y things of note: The mayor of Portland has declared August 6-9 Sock Knitting Week. I know, that’s kind of a short week, but we’re pretty laid back here in Portland. See the proclamation on the Blue Moon Blog. And Oregon Public Broadcasting’s show, Think Out Loud, is having an episode called the Joy of Knitting tomorrow morning (Wednesday, August 5). Cat Bordhi is one of the guests, and I’m in her class on Saturday. If you miss the show, you can find it on iTunes later, or stream it from the OPB website.

Knit on! And wish me speedy needles so I can finish this last sample…

  3. Definitely wishing you speedy knitting though I’m glad you’re having an all-socks week as it is Sock Summit after all! Have fun and make sure to share it all with us! :)

  4. Have a great time!! I look forward to hearing all about it. :)

  5. Alison Hyde (www.spindyeknit.com) and I have been chatting back and forth about how the people of Portland might respond to the onslaught of knitters. We had mused that the scene might be like Harry Potter and all his friends arriving at the train station to Hogwarts with all their gear in tow.

    Have a wonderful time, and be sure to take pictures for us at home!

  6. Have fun, take lots of pictures and tell us all about it!

  7. Gorgeous as usual. Have a great time at SS! I’m so jealous!

  8. Those are great socks! I can’t wait to hear all about it.

  9. Beautiful! I’ll certainly stop by your booth. Lorajean left me a comment & said she’d grown up in Sitka, AK. Small world, no? See you soon – we’re on our way to PDX this afternoon.

  10. Your socks are beautiful! Knitting a pair of socks is so on my list of things to accomplish!
