BigSock Event at Puffy Mondaes

This weekend was the Bigsock event at Puffy Mondaes , it was such great fun! Friday night we stayed up knitting until well after midnight on the bigsock. One thing I have noticed about this project is the sense of comraderie and unity that is felt while working on it with a group of knitters. It made me think of the craftswomen that came before us who would come together to work on group projects and build community. This is such a very special project for that very reason.

People trickled in all day Friday and Saturday and continue to pop into take part in the bigsock goodness.


lastly, proof that we have entirely too much crazy, giggly fun with our knitting...

The Bigsock is visiting Puffy Mondaes

Last Night at open craft night at Puffy Mondaes Sustainable Arts in Nampa Idaho we got the big sock all laid out, unraveled and set up. I have to admit it took me a minute to adequately get my mind wrapped around it to understand exactly how the sock works and how to keep it organized... We have a big event planned for the sock this weekend and we have these beautiful posters (origional art by Aaron Brown) going out to all of the yarn stores in the valley, and posted up all over the place.

This is Keren Brown, Artist Extrordinaire and owner of Puffy Mondaes. She will be coming out with me to the Sock Summit and helping me hostess the big sock.

My name is Heidi, and I will be the voice on this blog over the next several weeks letting you all know about all of the exciting things going on with the Big Sock... The sweet baby appendage in my pack is Lilah, she loves yarn.
