Sock Summit Report - Part 3

On June 15, 2009, 256 people gathered at Martin Place in Sydney, Australia to set the Guinness Book of World Records for most people knitting at the same time.

On August 7, 2009, at the Sock Summit held in the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon...

Stephanie and Tina explain the rules, as the Guinness officials and other dignitaries watch over the crowd...
















Although it is not official yet, the Australian record has been beaten. I heard that something to the tune of 935 people were knitting simultaneously in that ballroom...
