Sock Summit

So knitters, you've surely heard of Sock Summit that is about to take place in Portland, Oregon. I'm SO geeked that this is even happening. It's a monumental knitting event... in my book it totally kicks any other fiber festivals butt because it's all socks all the time, my favorite thing to knit. I wanted to go badly but lets face it -- it's a dream trip! Plus, its the same weekend as my son's 10th birthday and a huge family reunion that we're going to in Colorado.

Next year? WOW! I'd love to go! I hope they have one again! It'd be such a dream vacation! Anyone want to room with me???

So I can be green with sock envy about missing Sock Summit but at least there is blogland to keep us filled in, right?

Also -- I'm going to the New York Sheep and Wool festival in a couple of months, so that helps. WHEE! I am not going to buy yarn. Well, maybe a little, but truth be told I haven't bought any yarn in quite a while (at least for me). I'm trying very hard not to build up my stash again and knit with what I have. It's another major knitting event I've followed closely in blogland. I just want to go experience the festival while I can. Just once.

Oh! Such Fibery Goodness!

Me too, I want to go to the Sock Summit so badly my stomach aches. I'm hoping to attend Rheinbeck though, yippee!

You will need tons of will-power at Rhinebeck. Did you find a place to stay? Not sure if I'm going yet, but will be sure to let you know!

I'm missing Sock Summit and hitting Rhinebeck too :-)
