Sock Summit Registration Announcement

After a whole mega ton of coffee (sorry kidneys) not enough sleep, learning a whole lot of new things about importing/exporting large amounts of data and just how many ways you can do this, not enough sleep, more coffee, proofing, a wee bit of hysterical laughter, editing and proofing again all while on the phone with Steph or sometimes Stephen (I lovingly think of them as my Ste’s) we are here at registration announcement day.  I kid you not.

The letter below is about to go out to all of you lovely knitters on our mailing list.

Ok. Nap time right?

Dear Knitters,

The Sock Summit Team would like to announce that registration for Sock Summit 2011 will take place Wednesday, the 4th of May at 12:00 pm PDT. 

A very great many changes have been made to the registration process this go round, and all of them have been designed to make registration faster, easier, smoother and not melt down any servers anywhere no matter how many knitters try to do so at the same time. As a response to the number of knitters who didn’t get spots last time, this year, we’ve added more classes and more teachers. We find all of this terrifically reassuring, and hope that you do too. 

While you get ready for registration, please spend some time perusing our amazing selection of Teachers, Classes and Events, and have a good look at the schedule.  Monday, instructions and a walk through for registration will be posted on the registration page of our site, and we hope you’ll have a good look at that too, so that you’re ready when we go live.

As always, it’s an honour and a privilege to work for all of you. Running a sock conference is an unlikely and wonderful job, and we’re grateful that we get the chance.

With many thanks,

Tina Newton, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee and our exhausted head-geek and ST-2 Stephen Houghton

    I thank you from the bottom of my knitterly-heart that it’s not a wee bit later in the week when I’ll be ON A PLANE with no internet access.

    Now—how to give a reasonable explanation to step away from my job for a couple hours mid-day in our crunch time?

    Sleep well, Tina!

    I think of Stephanie and Stephen as the “two-step program”. 

    congrats on the results of your all-nighter.

    It’s hard to believe it’s almost here. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I won’t screw up big time when it’s time to register. Classes or not(though I’m truly hopeful), I’m going to be in Portland from Tuesday to Monday. Look out! Last Sock Summit, I hardly knew HOW to knit a sock. I’ve come a long way, baby(lol)!!!

    Cheers and red wine, Hazel.

    It’s Monday. It’s lunch time. I keep checking for registration instructions-a little obsessive-compulsively. They are supposed to show up today-right? Don’t let my paranoia get to you. Oh, this is really testing my maturity level.

    Cheers and red wine, Hazel.

    At last!!! Thank you to everyone involved. Fingers are poised for 3:00 p.m. EDT and I’ll have my credit card taped to the screen.

    I’m so excited for another SS – like a child waiting eagerly for Santa to arrive! I’ve said a wee prayer for servers and techie things to behave as they should for you tomorrow.  It will all be good.

    I wonder if you’re up yet? I am and I’ve got 6 hours to wait before registration goes live. I hope I survive(lol).
