Sock Camp Highlights

Here are the highlights (aka what I actually took pictures of) from sock camp. I always bring my camera and somehow never remember to take any pictures, so there are only a few and none of me as I obviously can't take pictures of myself. I'll have to get those from other people later.

On Monday morning we had a leisurely breakfast and then loaded up our gear and headed to the airport to pick up the rest of the campers riding on the bus. The lovely MJ was our bus driver:


After an uneventful trip and meeting some fellow campers on the ferry we arrived, checked into our rooms, and started meeting everyone. We even knit!

After the first night festivities, MJ and I returned to our room to finish up our homework assignments - to knit a toilet paper cozy. I knit a TP teepee - get it?


After the first night I apparently forgot that my camera existed for a good long while. More about that after I get back to Boston.

On the last night we had some of the Sock Camp rock stars sign the bus:

The Yarn Harlot, of course:

Tina from Blue Moon:


Friday afternoon there was also snow. Can I mention that in Boston it was 70 degrees? Saturday morning was even worse and as the bunch of shocked campers left Orcas the roads looked like this:


Crazy! We made it back to Seattle with a bit of stressing over our friends with flights at 2pm. Then MJ and I had a rather relaxing day of hanging out and almost falling asleep in various places such as the bathtub (separate bathtubs!) and while watching LOST - camp was amazing and exhausting.

I'm sure you already know that Yarn Harlot has a big-ass pic of you on her blog! Nothing like the rewards of knitting with a pepperoni stick!-lol! I'll be posting a pic of ya, too. I'm sure I have at least a couple.

It was great meeting you at Camp after seeing you on the knitty boards all this time.

BTW, I ended up w/your TP teepee at the end of that hysterical game.

And thank you director/producer/co-writer! Words cannot express how crazy that puppet show was.

What a great time we had! I have some pictures of the pre-camp crawl.... The short bus was the best. See you all next year.

Yay! Great pics of the bus!
She will be our Honeymoon Roadtrip vehicle this summer and should be touring some great music festivals along the West Coast. And Disneyland! ;)

Last weekend she was used as the wardrobe and make-up hang out for a Microsoft shoot. She's so versatile. :P
