Camp Jabberwonky 2011

What goes on in Sock Camp, stays in Sock Camp.  So I don't have much to tell you.  I don't have much to show you, either, in large part owing to me neglecting to take many pictures.  But here's a few snippets.

Sock Camp is, of course, all about socks.  And there were many.  Among my favorite (and not just because I made them) are the most awesome Northampton Beat Socks, designed by the most awesomer Marcy Vandale.  She does a mean dragon dance, and that's all I'll say about that.

Northampton Beat Socks, in STR Lightweight, colorway Pepe La Plume.  See the row of Lucy Neatby holes?  I just love these. 

Sock Camp is all about learning and sharing, and there was much of that.  Anna Zilboorg showed us how to spin.

Being in the presence of Anna was worth the price of admission alone.  What a remarkable woman.

Camp Counselor extraordinaire Debbi Stone demonstrated spindling. 

A whole lotta concentration goin' on at this table.

JC Briar and Anne Hanson led some very excellent classes, and did a bit of spinning of their own.  And that's all I have to say about that. 

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee did some interesting things with silk hankies.

I do believe there was a run on silk hankies at the camp store that afternoon.

Sock Camp.  I learned a lot.  I laughed a lot.  I ate a lot.  It was awesome.

Oh, and this year's pony tail dip was magenta.
