Sock Summit, Day One--The Madness Begins

Here's a few photos to make you wish you were here. Details will be forthcoming when/if I make it out of the yarn market alive.

The first photo is the line outside of the yarn market, right after they opened the doors. The yellow arrows are pointing to the line to get in. I stood on the stairs where I took this photo, for several minutes and never saw the end of the line. Crazy! I'm half hoping they'll buy everything before I get there. I only brought one suitcase.

This is the dragon where people were going to meet today, to trade stitch markers--the stitch markers I forgot to pack. Fortunately, DH has Fedexed them to me, and I'll do my trading later.

The convention center hangs banner from the different conventions and meetings happening here. I think this is the banner from the very first Sock Summit two years ago. I'll show you this year's banner in another post.

And finally, just for fun:

I wish you all could be here!


  1. Yay!! Hope you are having a blast!!

  2. I am so glad you aremthere to filter it all for me. I would be completely overwhelmed!

  3. That dragon is really cool!

    Have a good time @ Sock Summit! Your hubby is a real sweetheart to FedEx your markers! I think you have a "keeper".

  4. Sounds like an exciting trip ! I'm happy you are there and I look forward to seeing all photos of stitch markers and yarns when you return. Enjoy

  5. I wish I could be there too! I'm looking forward to hearing more about it. Thanks for the pics. Virginia Woof - awesome!

  6. OMG you are in PDX!!! I am so excited and happy for you and wish I was there too.
    I hope you have time to go to NE Alberta Street to visit yarn shop Closeknit. If you do, go have lunch at Helser's, also on Alberta Street.

    Oh, and the Japanese garden is also a must see.
    Enjoy, Susan!!!

  7. I love that I can vicariously enjoy SS through my blog feed. Thanks for that! And have a good time! (That's a bit like telling you to breathe, but anyway...)

  8. It seems perfectly reasonable to me that your DH is fedexing the stitch markers. We would do the same thing. Isn't it great to have a spouse who plays along?


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
