Being jetlagged has its advantages. I woke up at early since I was still on NY time (even though, I honestly slept in longer than usual).
I showered, ate, got my coffee and headed over to the Convention Center to do something I do very well --- volunteer. I helped vendors unload their cars, vans, trucks, U-hauls from 8:00 - 12:30. I met wonderful, wonderful people. Plus I got a super sneak pre-view of everything that came into the marketplace.
Here I am helping Karin Skacel check in. She was just one of the hundreds of amazing people I met during the morning.
After a quick bite of lunch, I headed off to my afternoon class "Making the Next Monkey" with Knitty Editor Amy Singer. Amy was a gem. I learned so much about pattern writing and submitting patterns for publication. It's all pretty simple stuff... but to hear it straight from Amy's mouth was a very good thing. The best part of the class was the fact that right there during class Amy selected TWO socks for future publication because they were so amazing.
Here's Lou Bolster (aka HappyStasher on Ravelry) holding her Thank You for Sharing candy necklace from Amy. Stay tuned for Lou's OUT OF THIS WORLD sock for next year on Knitty. You will not be disappointed. That's all I'm saying. (Congrats Lou!)
That's my first report on the Sock Summit. There is so much more to tell, but it's already time for me to run back to the convention center, so you'll have to stay tuned for more. It is great fun. I really wish you could all be here. Really.
