Things We Learned at Sock Summit Day 2

I am a pick up artist. I did a demo on the show floor today about how and where to best pick up stitches for the gusset. Just one "aha" from the audience would have been enough, but I had a couple. Yay!

It is possible to go to the Oregon Brewer's Festival and still successfully take one of my classes. And not just any class - my War & Peace Two Socks One Inside the Other Class. You know who you are... Seriously, girl, you got chutzpah and mad skillz. I also love that the beer festival has a craft table, where you make pretzel necklaces.

And Knitgrrl scares hipsters. Dinner at Doug Fir restaurant, surrounded by pale, tattooed young men with sideburns.

It's been a busy day.
