Off by one

As you know, I’ve been away for a week at sock knitting camp. We arrived home yesterday, after a LONG day driving Mom to the airport at 5:30am, waiting for a greasy spoon to open to get breakfast, almost missing our plane, awaiting the return of Janie Sparkles. Needless to say, I’m exhausted.

It was go-go-go all week long, between classes and antics and knitting and eating (and eating and eating). Leaving the island on Saturday was also a jam-packed with waiting for the ferry, driving back to Seattle, visiting Bad Woman Yarn, getting Chicken Knittle and Megpie to the airport… then, we had to meet up with Mr. Man who had been in Seattle since Friday. Later that evening, we had a drink with my dear friend from college, her adorable daughter and husband, then dinner before crashing.

All this is to say, I haven’t had time to edit my photos or compose a camp recap post. And in my rush to get home and transition back to reality, I forgot that I had also requested today off! Just for this very reason, to ease back into life and decompress from the knitting overload.

So I didn’t need to spend the day at work. Alas, I had already driven to Berkeley, I decided to stay.

    Were you mentioned on the Yarn Harlot’s blog enough? You shameless hussy.

    Tales from Sock Camp

    By now you’ve already read all the other blog entries about Sock Camp, I’m sure. But I just don’t think the magical wonderfulness of an entire week surrounded by hard core sock knitters can be done justice by the interwebs….

    I hit Bad Woman Yarn on my way to camp! Wasn’t it great? I had no problem spending too much money there and acquiring more stash.

    My monkey is here at work with me today to remind me of the fun I had last week. I wish I had been able to take yesterday off, oh well.
