Socks by Southwest, pt. 2


Here are the socks mentioned in the previous post…

So, you’d think finding out one knitter-rati at SXSW would be enough, right? After the Vickie’s panel, I stood chatting with her man Dave. A woman came up and asked if I was going to the SXSW knit-in at HCW. I hadn’t heard of such a thing, Dave mentioned that they were going, so why not?

I asked this lovely lady and her gentleman escort where they were from and if they were knitters. I assume they knew I was because I sat there working on the mysterious blue sock that I’m not showing in pictures just yet (buried in the photo over there). It turns out they are from San Francisco. Small world! Her voice sounded slightly familiar, then she mentioned she and a friend have a podcast.

“You’re Stash and Burn!” It’s only my latest podcast obsession, found via Lisa Souza’s blog. I got to spend the night chatting with Jenny and her beau Harold. Hooray for new knitting friends!

We’re all off to the Knit and Nosh at Hill Country Weavers. Thanks, Meg for letting me know about that!

    I think you were the only one in the room I didn’t get to meet. But I’m glad you made it to HCW and got to hang out and knit. Have a great rest of your trip.

    Happy Knitting,

    You were pretty stinking adorable yourself, mister! And your sock was impressive. Very impressive. You know what they say about long socks. Patient knitters.
