Summit Shopping

When Mom comes to visit, we always buy more than we should.  She almost always ships a box home and I… well, I look forward to paying off my credit card bill.

We had a good time at the Sock Summit. It was a quick trip because we had to be back by Saturday for other commitments. So we didn’t take any classes or attend any events. But we did shop ’til our hearts content.  I LOVED being able to see and touch all the indy dyers’ yarn. It was totally worth the trip for that alone.  And I think I’m going to have to make myself a goal to knit at least one pair of socks a month so that I can justify going back again next year!
