Saying Goodbye to a Friend - the Big Sock


Over the past month, we've had over 200 people knit on the Big Sock as we've added 19 inches to the overall length.

The range of ages of those who knitted on the sock was from 4 years to 80+ (we don't ask ladies their real age).

We had people from California, Colorado, Tennessee, Utah, Texas, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Washington, Kansas, Arkansas, New Mexico, Florida, Kentucky and of course Arizona who knitted on the sock while it was in the shop.

We had several newspapers run stories, plus two televisions stations visited the shop.

The sock became a focal point for discussions, laughs, learning and good old fashion fun! Plus there was sense of pride that we were participating in something bigger than own lives and would be part of a world record.

We want to thank Joanna Ratcliff who started the Big Sock. We also want to thank everyone who worked on the sock before us and those who will continue after us. It has been a blast and really felt great. We also want to send a special thanks to Skacel who donated both needles and yarn.
Goodbye old friend, continue putting one foot in front of the other until you become the biggest sock!
