Getting ready, again

24 10 2008

The countdown has started, only 12 days left.

12 days left to what you ask?

12 days left until


Yup, yarn4socks will be at Stitches East this year, which means that we’ve been crazy busy getting everything ready for it.

  • Knit 8 samples socks – check

7 sample socks

Oops, there’s one missing…

Blue Lagoon Poms

There it is! I don’t know why I thought that a Pomatomus would be a good deadline knitting sock but it ended up being better than I anticipated. I’ve only 2 repeats to go on the leg and then I’ll be all set for the ribbing. So it should be finished in time.

  • Sock blockers for all of our sample socks – check

Socks & sock blockers

You can’t really tell but there are at least 16 sock blockers there.

  • 17 box bags to sell at the show – not check

6 bags out of 17 done

These 6 are pretty much done

The other 11 - assembly line style

The remainder are still in need of a bit of finishing. You can see them there assembly line style (my sewing machine is right off picture).

I still have a couple things to do to them before they’re completely finished but they should be done in time too.

  • Signs for our booth and for the shelving units – not done at all

Guess what I’m going to be doing this weekend!

All silliness aside, if you’re in the Baltimore area and are planning to go to Stitches East, please come and say hi!
