Sock Summit, Day Three

Today I took two classes from Stephen Houghton (hizknits) of Yknit. In Hip Hems for Him & Her, we learned about cool cast-ons and hems to make "the third side" of socks look sharp. And in Making Socks Manly, we discussed all aspects of knitting socks for the men in our lives, from color to style to masculinizing lacey motifs into something guys might wear. He was a knowledgable, humorous, and patient teacher -- take a class from him if you get a chance.

But the highlight of my day was meeting none other than the internationally famous ce-web-rity, Miss Janie Sparkles.

Indeed, she does!
