The lovely Jamie of Zippy Pins supplied 500 buttons for handing out to knitters that worked on the Big Sock. Not only did 500 knitters come by, but another estimated 50-100 knitters participated!
There were a couple of knitting celebrities who popped over to knit on the sock. I happened to snap Melissa Morgan-Oakes looking sly during her time with Big Sock. Another was CAT from Let's Knit Together.
Special thanks go to the folks who donated skeins of yarn to be incorporated in the Big Sock:
- Olebrumm whose beautiful skein from a rare Finnish breed of sheep is being added this week during Stitches East (if not today!).
- Duchess Fibers who are the USA distributors of Punta Yarns. The skein they donated is Merisock Hand Paint in colorway HP71.
Congrats to all you who participated! Yay!!!!
