just add yarn

Imagine this, full of yarn and knitters and you have Sock Summit. This will be our Marketplace and a fiber-y Valhalla in Portland, OR.

And, I helped build it.

It’s been the culmination of the past year of work. This event was the driving force behind they timing of my leaving method. It’s all coming to be tomorrow morning.

Late nights, working over weekends, tonight’s paper cuts, and lots of flying up and down the coast. And that’s the calm before the storm. I’ll be stationed at the Registration desk for the entire weekend, when I’m not teaching or leading a flash mob. If you see me in the next few days, would you be a dear and ask me if I’ve eaten, hydrated or had a little walk? I want to be in tip-top shape to make people’s needles needle dreams come true.

I’m honored and humbled to be a part of Knot Hysteria. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d be a working knitting professional. The first Sock Summit changed my life, and, my, oh, my how it’s changed even since.

And it changes still, as life does.

    I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts for the next few days, darling! And every once in a while I’ll send random “Drink some water!” or “Eat some protein!” thoughts as well. Love you!
