Sock Summit 2009 Casts On

button_sock_summitSock Summit 2009 is celebrating the diversity of sock knitting in Portland, Oregon from Aug. 6 – 9.   

Close to 40 of the finest sock specialists will gather at the Oregon Convention Center to teach knitting enthusiasts how to knit odd socks, historically accurate socks, boot socks, warm socks, lacy socks, and even elegant socks.

You can learn how to make argyle socks, Bavarian stockings, Toe-up Socks for the Stubborn, or Turkish stitches.

While taking a break from classes you can browse the marketplace, which has more than 150 venders, selling everything from yarn, needles, bags, patterns, jewelry, and art.  You can also attend an old-fashioned sock hop or a lecture on the history of socks.

Laurel Hill will be selling our exotic, handmade and sustainable needles and hooks at the Sock Summit marketplace.
