Slowly adjusting to life back in the real world. Sock Camp was wonderful! This year it was a day longer - and that made it a little less hectic than it was last year. We had great classes where we learned about Cat's new sock architectures, traveling stitch's with Cookie, a bunch of great cast ons with JC (the woman who designed the Broiche Sock, who I stalked on the internet and called on the phone when I had a problem with the pattern!? She is just as nice in person) and of course, a whole class where we learned 'It's not Tina's fault'! Very fun!!
I got to see friends that I made last year, and made some new ones - which was a blast. I even managed to learn that a fellow camper was an ob/gyn - so if I was freaking out about something pregnancy related, I had her to ask questions too (and she didn't even seem to mind!).
I have to admit - my favorite day was Monkey Making Day. Mine was kind of tame (the one on the right that looks like Shrek)
This one is the Brokeback Monkey - if you look close, you may see a little surprise:
This group cracks me up:
And here is Debbie, the woman who wrote the Sock Monkey pattern - totally covered in sock monkeys!
I know this was only really one day - I pretty much forgot that I brought my camera. But I loved the sock monkey's - and so many people went totally overboard! Steph's sock monkey was wearing an argyle vest! But I'm totally making more of these sock monkeys. Totally.
