I was there... I was there. In years to come, this will be a legend.
And as was the case for many at Woodstock, I don't actually remember much. I taught, I knit, I hobnobbed with the greats.. and I missed so much. I did not get much sleep. I did not attend the Sock Hop in favor of knitting a few more samples for my bootie class the next day. I did not meet everyone I had wanted to look up in the Marketplace.
But in the end, I saw that it was all perfect. And that everyone's experience of SS09 was different from everyone else's.
I didn't take too many pictures, but here are a few to add to the huge number that have already been posted around the internet:
Stephen Houghton knitting with whatever was handy...
Yes.. those are tampons.
Cat Bordhi in the Convention Center lobby the evening before Day 1.
Stephanie and Tina cracking each other up in the opening remarks.
Right to left, Abby Franquemont, Ann Budd, and Denny McMillan. Having a blast.
Fabulous Jasmin and Gigi of Knitmore Girls fame, after our podcast interview.
The Luminaries: From the left, Lucy Neatby, Cat Bordhi, Deb Robson, Anna Zilboorg, Priscilla Gibson-Roberts, and just a tiny glimpse of Nancy Bush on the other side of the podium where Stephanie and Tina were keeping things in check.
Wow. Just wow.
