2011 sock summit recap

ok, i know that i am dreadfully overdue in posting my account of the wondrous Sock Summit. generally, the more momentous the occasion, the longer it takes me to summon the insight i’d like to have in retelling it…

so without further heel-dragging, here we go. above you see the line to get into the Summit, […]
