Welcome to the greatest (and only) sock knitting show on earth. Sock Summit 2011 continues the tradition we began in 2009: of a one of a kind conference for hand-knitters that explores the humble art form known as the sock.
A conference for sock knitters.
Why socks? People ask us that all the time.
Socks are practical, beautiful, historical, engaging and symbolic. Socks are circular, portable, structural and a perfect tiny canvas for almost any hand knitting technique you'd like to put on them. No matter what you're interested in when it comes to knitting, there's a way that it has to do with socks. We're sure there's something here for you whether you're practical, fanciful or inexperienced in the ways of the sock.
Sock Knitting History Still In The Making!
We've got a ton of classes
this year, and when you're not in class you can scope out the Marketplace
, attend our Sock Hop
, take part in a race, or watch knitterly feats of daring-do.
There's more, much more and big fun at every turn. We're hoping that Sock Summit, and the journey you make to it, will be one of the best things ever. If you came last time, we think you'll have even more fun. If this is your first trip – Welcome, and brace yourself.
