The Big Sock's San Diego Visit
We had a great time with the BigSock visit during it's visit to San Diego. People were amazed by the scale of the sock and while most knit for a needle or 2, others spent hours and hours with the sock. It was nice to slow down and visit over the sock during the last month.
It was great to watch knitters pour over the scrap book, admire the work that had been done and then pick their spot, sometimes it was their favorite seat at the table, some picked based on their favorite color. We had knitters of all ages come to knit on the sock.
To wrap up it's time with us at Two Sisters and Ewe we threw the Big Sock Bash on September 18th, 20 knitters came to spend the evening adding as much as we could to the Big Sock.
From our measurements we added 4 inches, and unintentionally a lot of purple (not sure why so much purple, I guess it's just our color).
It was an honor to host The Big Sock on it's visit to San Diego! The BigSock is currently winging it's way to Pennsylvania. Happy Knitting!
