Happy Birthday to Me!
Tuesday morning I had a lovely birthday brunch with my mom, sister, two exchange students staying with them, and my aunt and uncle. The chicken is my sock camp mascot. Then my mom drove me and dropped me off at the ferry to Anacortes.
On the ferry the knitters were pretty easy to find, and I met many of my fellow campers.
This morning the shop opened and it was pretty chaotic, but I did manage to score a few skeins of yarn and a sheep to shoe kit.
Today was the first day of classes. The first class was with the Yarn Harlot and she taught us all about socks. In the second class we worked on a community blanket knitting in a circle.
This evening we had our event revealing the chickens and my chicken and I made many friends!
Hizknits got a great garterlac chicken:
And Cookie's chicken had a tender moment with mine.
Notice anything special about the chicken's foot?
Camp is great, I'm totally exhausted, and I really don't have time to tell you about all the amazing stuff. But I'll leave you with some Blue Moon socks!
