- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Knitting is huge! Your average yarn shop has become not just a place to fondle yarn, peruse books, and test-drive other knitting necessities before purchase. It's also a social gathering site, where informal groups gather regularly to swap suggestions and share successes.
Like knittinmom, I look forward to teaching at Sock Summit. It's sure to be a highlight of my knitting career. But I remain indebted to this day to the local yarn shop owner who offered a sock knitting class, and gave me the "ah ha!" moment I hadn't been able to cull from books. In the 12+ years since, I've designed and knit countless socks, and passed "ah ha!" moments on to hundreds of other knitters.
This is what Sock Summit will be about: fondling yarn, sharing successes, and passing on "ah ha!" moments.
