PROJECT DETAILS. . .
Beginning: January 20, 2006 at 12 noon
Ending: May 27, 2006 at 12 noon
On May 27th., this project will accompany the first International Opal Sock Knitters’ Meeting in Hechingen. Germany.
Anyone can participate, regardless of whether he or she takes part in the meeting in Hechingen.
On 27. May 2006 at 12 noon, the baby socks will be hung on a clothesline in Hechingen, counted, and the length of the clothesline with the socks will be measured. Will our laundry line of baby socks be in the “Guinness Book of World Records?”
The main purpose of this program is not to set a world record, but to provide socks for a good cause!
After the program is over, the socks will be donated by Tutto GmbH to charity organizations. Shelters for abused women and their children, (many of which do not receive government funding), are a cause that Wolfgang Zwerger especially supports, and they will be the main recipients of the socks.
Baby socks are a great way to use up those scraps of sock yarn, and keep some child’s feet warm as well. Please knit along with us and help out!
And that’s where we come in folks!!
Thus, our contest was born!!
