I was there...were you?!

The official word isn't in yet, but just look at how many knitters turned out to try and break the Guinness World Record for the most knitters knitting simultaneously! On Friday, August 7th, knitters from around the world gathered during the Sock Summit in Portland, Oregon to attempt to break the record. To date, the record was set in Australia at a whopping 256. I think we did it!

Here's a cropped view...see! There I am...knitting away! Being surrounded by knitters from all over the world was amazing. And of course, with the Yarn Harlot (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee) as our delightful leader, it was great fun!

Take a look at the local TV news coverage here. Pretty cool!
