A huge thank you to Michelle Fallon who organized the “1,000 Knitters Wanted” event at the Roscommon Lamb Festival this past Saturday, in a bid to break the previous Guinness World Record for most people knitting in one place.
Myself and my mom, cousins, and aunts huddled in Hyde Park, where 1,147 knitters of all ages gathered and smashed the previous record of 937 held by Oregon, in the USA! We were kept thoroughly entertained thanks to the band and general craic had by all. What an achievement not only for Roscommon, but for Ireland! What a way to spend a Saturday.
I knitted a section of a teddy bear hat I’m making for a dear friend back in Canada. Imma blog it when it’s done, of course.
