Sock Camp

April 15, 2007 by

Dude. Sock Camp was seriously b-e-y-o-n-d. I’ve been Bordhi-ed. I’ve been Harlotted. And man, oh man, have I been Blue Mooned.

The classes were perfect. Color theory with Tina? It was all I could do to keep from weeping tears of joy. Grok the Sock with Stephanie? Holy crap. Plus she gave a brief tutorial on intarsia in the round- a problem I have been trying to solve for YEARS. My brain is a happier place for learning this. Cat’s class? Don’t even remember what is was called, and honestly it doesn’t matter- “Cat’s class” says it all. Freaking love Cat.

My fellow campers were perfect. There is really no way to describe something as experiential as our few days together on Orcas. This week will be in my heart for a long time. Here are just a few pictures (I took about 800. 839 to be precise).



Hi Chappy!



Hi Stephen!



Look- it is the Harlot & Cat doing yoga, while competeing to see which is faster- circs or dpn’s. Right after this, Cat stood on the table while continuing to knit.


Oh and I got Cara-ed at least by her blanket. I flipped out when I saw it- like meeting Pete Freakin’ Townsend, or in this case Bruce. Chica- this is for you!




Whomever took this picture of Tina, Cat and me- THANK YOU. I love it. Shout out!






More to come, I promise. Love y’all.
