Tina “smooshing” color as only Tina can do.  Beautiful in an instant.  Magical where the colors meet.
Ever seen a crab who knows how to knit?  This is one does , and he wasn’t the only crab there who knew how, there were at least 5 or 6 other crabs with projects in various stages of completion.
And this is Cat Bordhi  (Socks Soar on Two Circs, New Pathways for Knitting Socks and many more wonderful books)on the left and Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (The Yarn Harlot) on the right with their “Chicken of the Sea”.  A late entry into the homework presentation.  Some art just lives on forever and ever and ever and ever…………….

This is the view out of the huge atrium-garden dining room.  Beautiful .  Just to the left of this was a giant totem pole that was a favorite perch of 3 bald eagles.  
It was soooo 
 fun!  These photos don’t even start to do it justice.  The most fun you can have as a knitter.  Imagine 60 other, wait—make that 58 other women and one man, all like minded knitters who love knitting socks.  From all walks of life.   Nurses, teachers, surgeons, college professors, airline pilots, housewives, yarn store owners,  lawyers, professional dog competitors, and on and on.  All with one goal in mind for 5, almost 6 days.  Socks and fun.  You don’t have to be an expert knitter.  In fact, you don’t even have to knit socks.  Both years I met at least one person who had never knitted a sock, and one didn’t plan on learning.  
I want to go back right now!
