Packing for Sock Camp

The homework's done for Sock Camp and all I need to do is pack. Below are the scraps I got sent to use in my homework assignment. I ended up using all the Mustang Sally and Dragon Dance, and partials of the off-white, green and blue Sock Candies. I don't think it came out great (my embroidery skills suck), but I do think I have enough leftover to make a 2nd plain homework assignment if I, for some reason, do a complete freak out (as if I hadn't already) and decide to plug away at a second one.

Because of the homework and birthday celebrations for DH & Monkey1, I haven't done much knitting. I did however finally finish my first Cedar Creek Sock in the lightweight STR in Braun's Woods.

After reading about pointy toe issues on the Ravelry Cedar Creek KAL thread and talking to tapmouse about hers, I decided to start the toe decrease a little early and stopped when I had 12 sts left.

I love how this turned out. I'm bringing the rest of the skein just in case I will actually have time to work on the second sock (along w/Monkey1's second Dublin Bay sock) during Camp.

Since Internet connection is rather minimal/restricted (cell phone too), I'm not bringing my laptop. With around 100 Campers (participants & staff), some of whom blog practically professionally, I'm not even going to try to snag some air time at all during the week.

See you all in a week or so!
