They posted the class schedule for the Sock Summit recently. There are a lot more classes this time! I read through them and pulled out my “first cut” of classes, which will slowly get whittled down to an achievable number. Sadly, the two classes that I was really hoping would be offered aren’t (the Yarn Harlot’s Knitting for Speed and Cat Bordhi’s one about making up new stitches). I’m dying to take that Speed Knitting class- I missed it at the last Summit and Madrona. Oh well. There are a lot more spinning classes this year to make up for it!
Now, to understand this next part, you have to realize that I am a total dork.
I took the schedule page from the website and made an Excel worksheet of it. It has all the classes on it, divided by day and time, and each class is hyperlinked to it’s webpage. This way, I can easily copy/paste or drag and drop the classes I want into as many schedule possibilities as I want. I can rearrange the layout of the days and times for easier visualization. I can easily find which classes repeat on which days. And I can always look back on all the classes, to see if there’s a class or lecture that fits in nicely but I hadn’t been interested in previously (I change my mind a lot). I even tried to match the original colors as best I could.
Yes, I’m thinking about this too much.
But, in case anyone else is a total dork, I’ve uploaded the Excel files (one for Office 2010 and one pre-2010) here if you’d like to use them too. Share the dorkiness!!
