So, last week, I'm at home minding my own business, screwing around on Twitter, and I see a tweet that the Sock Summit class schedule is up.
Cut to me running dramatically to the computer. :)
I went to the first Sock Summit and had a spectacular time (you can read all about it in this blog post). I took some good classes and knit so much during that weekend that I came home with three and a half pairs of new socks (seriously. knit. all. weekend).
Last time was heavy on the yarn purchases and I only took a couple classes. Seriously, here is the yarn haul from last time:
I'm almost embarrassed to post that. That is A LOT of yarn. I have knit more than half of that in the last year and a half, but there is still quite a bit of Sock Summit stash around here. This time, I am going to try to take some more classes. Of course, there will have to be yarn buying, but it is going to be scaled back this round (yeah, I say that now, right?). :)
There is no way that I can take all the classes I want to (there are so many good classes!), but here are the ones at the top of my list:
Advanced Top Down Sock Design
Writing Up an Awesome Sock Pattern
Making the Next Monkey
Designing with Japanese Stitch Dictionaries
(um, see a theme there?) :)
I also am interested in these classes:
Knitting Knee Highs
Designing Socks with Handpainted yarn
So, we'll see. Hopefully I can get into some of my top picks!
Are you going to Sock Summit? What do you want to take?
