Going to Sock Summit?

This week, well, actually the last few, have flown by. I've been trying to get a lot of dyeing done before our first week in Cape May. In the last 3 weeks, I've produced shipments for two yarn clubs:


a Yarn Club offering

two sock clubs with a third drying right now:


a Sock Club offering


a batch of merino/tencel sock yarn that's going to Loop in a few days (just in time to welcome WendyKnits, who'll be signing her wonderful toes-up book and teaching some classes):



and a ginormous batch of sock yarn




that will be sold at the Sock Summit. Kathy Elkins of WEBS asked if I had arranged for anyone to sell my yarn there, since I'm not able to go, and I happily took her up on her offer. I shipped out eight colorways yesterday, and I'll be sending 7 more before the end of the month. So if you go to Portland, please stop by the WEBS booth and tell Kathy and Steve thanks! (You should also stop to see the joint Wild Geese Fibres/Rabbitch booth, a.k.a. Bon Vendor/Bad Vendor (little Canadian cinematic humor there) because in addition to lovely yarn, they are two hilarious and awfully nice people to meet.)

Now it's time to pack up three kids and bunny rabbit for our first week Downa Shore...

Good to see you got the order right! Or should I be Bonne Vendor?
So, there goes more of my money, I love that colourway going to Webs. I'm thinking wee Kaytlin would like it too.

Ooh! They all look so fun and gorgeous. I wish I was local again (during the year, but not the summer!) to go see Wendy at Loop. Tragedy. Have a great vacation!

Beautiful colors? Which one is mine???

Are you going to the Stitch Party? I hope so.

Have fun at the shore!

The sock club skein looks like the one that wound up at my house! I love it, and am in the process of finding just the right pattern for it.
