World's Largest sock? We'll see...



Twice now, I have knit on the sock that will be submitted to the Guinness World Book of Records as being the largest. The sock came to us at Noble Knitters (Our wed. night knit group at Barnes & Noble) via Rochester NY via Debra of AKG (Atlanta Knitting Guild). I don't know a whole lot more about it other than that. It is enormous and we have had it twice at Noble Knitters. There are enough needles in it for about 12 people or so to knit on it at once. It traveled around the Atlanta area and lots of other groups got a chance to knit it too. From here it went to Rochester NY again. Kind of like the old fashioned quilting bee ...


I am so excited about the new yarn we are now carrying. It is almost ready to go in the shop and it is from Thirteen Mile Lamb & Wool Company in Montana. We will currently be carrying their worsted weight and bulky weight in their natural colors. It is processed right there on their Predator Friendly farm, (more on that later). Beautiful. Oh and it is from organic wool. You will *love* the elasticity of this well-processed, minimally-altered natural fiber. I promise.
And just in - New Pathways for Sock Knitters by Cat Bordhi, Book One. It has been very popular and going fast...
