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!
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…
