On Friday, my second and last day at the Sock Summit, I managed to stroll through the Sock Summit Market Place and get some great pictures of the wonderful things to see.
Here's Brian of the Skacel team, taking a wild 'n crazy self-portrait.
Here's he is again at the Skacel booth knitting SEVEN pair of socks simultaneously on a special 100" long Turbo Addi needle. Look at his special soft shoe rack to hold all that yarn straight. Go Brian Go! You definitely are the master of the sock universe.
Finally, here's the back of the adorable t-shirt that Brian and Karin gave me as a thank-you gift for helping them unload all their wares for the Skacel booth. What a fantastic t-shirt. Skacel totally rocks! Thanks guys!
After visiting the Skacel booth, I also saw some other noteworthy items. Check out this lovely lady wearing none other than The Thigh's The Limit stockings
The final thing to catch my eye was this lovely little pocket sock. I didn't get the name of the knitter/vendor or the pattern, but these were little beauties all right.
Wonder what she's storing in that little pocket?
So there you have it. I wish I had taken pictures of everything there was to see at Sock Summit 2009. It was truly one of the New and Improved Seven Wonders of the World.
Thanks Stephanie and Tina for making this magical week of sock knitting happen. You two (and all your staff - including Debra photographed above) are utterly amazing. I hope you've caught up on your sleep; done your laundry; seen your family; sat back and relaxed (and patted yourself on the back). You all deserve it. The rest of us really can't thank you enough.
