Why I'm a Spoiled Brat #16

On Wednesday, I board a plane for Portland, Oregon, where I will be teaching at the second Sock Summit (the first was in 2009). This is the most amazing event dedicated to sock knitters, from first-time newbies to die-hard veterans. I used to think it odd to tell shuttle drivers that I was going to a knitting convention. You can imagine how their eyebrows raise I mention I'm going to a sock convention.
But I digress.
Last week I got an email from Jordana Paige, maker of some of the most beautiful and functional knitting bags on the market. Jordana wondered if I'd like a new bag to carry my knitting and class notes at Sock Summit. My first thought was that this was a hoax by one of many mischievous friends. But it was for real.
Yesterday, the UPS truck stopped in front of my house and the man in brown brought a box to my door.
I now have a spanking new bag to show off at the convention (and everywhere else)!


If you see me and my bag at Sock Summit, be sure to say "hi," And if you need a knitting bag, check out the ones by Jordana Paige!

Jordana is a lovely woman who also has published some very nice sweater patterns. I was lucky enough to meet her at Stitches West this year. I purchased a bright green version of one of her latest purses, and get compliments on it everywhere I go (from knitters and non-knitters alike). She had a sample of her Skylar sweater in her booth, and after speaking with her, I not only bought the pattern, but bought the same type of yarn she used after she directed me to their booth (Yowza What a Skein from Miss Babs).

No hard sell, but definitely hard to resist.

Enjoy your bag and Sock Summit!

I love your blog, but esp. appreciated the link to Jordana Paige LOL as I know know what Santa is going to bring me for Xmas. The Namaste bags are also gorgeous, but I've never sprung for one. This time I think I'll get a Jordana bag -- how did yours work out?
