Sunday morning, I took a class on designing with Japanese stitch dictionaries. I really enjoyed the class and had a great time knitting a little swatch using techniques found in the Japanese stitch dictionaries. I even learned to make a crocheted bobble. While I don't really see myself using that in a design anytime soon, it was super cool.
After class was over, I met Jenni and we decided to walk over to Twisted. We knew it was kind of a hike, but it was nice and we hadn't been outside of the convention center area, so off we went. It really was a nice walk. We stopped for lunch and beers, and then went to Twisted.
This shop is seriously cute.
I especially enjoyed the vintage knitting pattern section. I spent some serious time flipping through all those booklets!A Verb for Keeping Warm sock yarn and some roving.
Then we walked back to the hotel and chilled on the roof for awhile. I was especially exhausted after our weekend of knitting, so we headed back to the room and knit in our PJs. A wonderful finish to a wonderful weekend.
I am so glad that Jenni and I decided to make the trip to Portland for Sock Summit. And, of course, we have already made plans to return in 2013!
