While others were listening to the speakers and following along in their (>5 pounds) 3-ring binder of speakers' handouts and making notes in the margins and highlighting the most important points, what was I doing? Listening closely. And knitting.
How much can I knit in two days? This much:
That is the back of my kimono sweater, 140 stitches wide. The first thing I did during the Monday morning keynote session was frog half that narrow red stripe to fix some wonky stuff. Overall I am pleased with my progress and reluctantly realizing this sweater requires a lot of knitting. Onward!

I blew it on Monday for NaBloPoMo, but in my defense I did not have actual internet access. Had I been really, really dedicated I could have stood in line at one of the internet cafes* at the conference and put up one of the draft posts I have waiting in the wings. But I spent my time gathering freebies at the vendor exhibits and eating the snacks provided and chatting with friends. Oh, well...
* Internet cafe = a couple laptops on stand-up tables.
