Back from the Sock Knitting Convention

We just returned from a week in Brown County, Indiana. Over 100 sock knitters (of the circular sock knitting machine type) came from 3 countries and most US states for a week of learning and practicing new skills.

The Farmer had a fabulous time meeting new people and cranking out socks for 10 hours a day, several days running. 

The rest of us spent some quality time hiking, biking and swimming in the Brown County State Park. This park is a jewel and shouldn't be missed. If you can possibly swing it, go when it's not sweltering summertime. We had mostly good weather, with the heat waiting until the last 2 days to manifest itself.

Toward the end, the family faded a bit, while the Farmer knitted on...


  1. WOW---I didn't even know they have sock knitting conventions. Maybe I need to broaden my horizons some.

    Glad you had a nice vacation. Is it back to farm life and more haying now?

  2. Ottakee, the sock knitting conventions are pretty new (unlike the machines). I think this was the 9th or 10th annual convention.

    Back to farm life, at a run. More haying today, maybe.

  3. I was wondering when and where they usually have these conventions.
    I would love to attend one. Do they have vendors there also. I attend a lot of quilting conventions and they have quilts on display and there are a lot of vendors that you can purchase books, fabric, etc.
    So I was wondering if they have one for loom kniting also.
