Sock Summit Post #1

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

We instructors here at Sock Summit in Portland, Oregon, are being treated very well. Wednesday night we were treated to a lovely, beautifully-cooked dinner (mine prepared specifically so that I could eat it in spite of my sensitivities). It was great to meet folks I’d met only on line previously.

Thursday morning I sat in on a class by Donna Druchunas. She is the author of Arctic Lace, a book on quiviut lace in Alaska (it won awards, a lovely book). It was a session on how to look at a historical sock and reproduce it. I left when they started the actual knitting, but very much enjoyed the samples Donna brought and the books she had with her.

I could write for hours… but there is so much to do here I must keep it short. I’m taking photos but don’t have time to process/upload one for you today.

Catch you later!
