Bigsock at the Finger Lakes Fiber Festival in Hemlock NY over 200 people knitted on it throughout the weekend! (this was in September). The Rochester Knitting Guild had it at their "booth"
'We invited people at the festival to sit down and knit - it was a huge success - everyone loved it.
They always do, it just draws people in wherever it goes.' Debra Scorse.

Sock Hits Atlanta!

Sock Aiming for Guinness World Record Glory Arrives from England Making AtlantaThe Second Stop on its Trip Around the World.

Members of the AKG work on the Big Sock during the August AKG meeting at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church.

ATLANTA, August 9, 2007 - For the next several weeks metro Atlanta residents and visitors will have the opportunity to "make" history - literally with their hands, as the world's largest sock travels to several stops in the area before being shipped to other destinations throughout the U.S. and across the world.

Atlanta is perceived to be a most logical destination for the sock's itinerary, as the city is home to the second largest knitting guild in the country. The Atlanta Knitting Guild ("AKG") is 350 members strong with a projected growth of 500+ over the next 24 months. The group is working with businesses and local yarn shops to provide multiple opportunities for people to view and/or contribute to the creation of the world's largest sock.
"We are delighted to sponsor this wonderfully fun event. Our city is vibrant, full of creativity, and internationally focused, making this a natural for us to host on behalf of Atlanta," said Donna Daniels, AKG President.
