Sure as rain, last night I finished those socks I was working on all day. There's nothing like a whole day of travel to rack up the knitting time.
Yarn: Berroco Sox, colour 1440, 2.25mm needles Pattern: my standard Sock Recipe from Knitting Rules - worked over 64 stitches.
My thanks to Tina for modelling them this morning. It takes a special dedication to the humble hand knit sock to stand on a bench at 6:30am- taking direction about the placement of your feet.
We've got a day that moves at breakneck pace today as Sock Camp begins - every room at the Port Ludlow Inn will have a knitter in it by nightfall. We have rooms to set up, bags to organize and a game or two to pull together. (We have reluctantly decided against a sock yarn version of dodgeball, although it was really, really funny to imagine.) We have class notes and supplies to place, teachers to welcome (Hi Lucy! Welcome Carson!) and a few surprises to arrange. It's going to be busy, and wonderful, and a world with just knitters and knitter support people in it for four whole days. I'm excited.
And I need more yarn. Those socks were supposed to take three days.
