After the incredible deluge of folks who knitted on the Bigsock at Rhinebeck, it seemed only appropriate that I take this puppy on the road with me to STITCHES East. 🙂 I picked up my buddy Erin (LittleWit on Ravelry) of the “Half Acre Goods” blog at the correct airport (I first went to the teensy one in Hartford) and we headed to her aunt and uncle’s home for the weekend. Little did we know how busy we would get and how much fun we would have!
Many of the pictures easily tell the story for me. Thanks to some connections at the US Post Office, we were able to track when the box containing Bigsock would arrive and then hurried it out to the convention center. As soon as we could open the box, I measured the length of Bigsock since its Rhinebeck adventure: 24 inches total. (woohoo!)
There were so many people came to see Bigsock. Huge giant thanks go to Jenny Bannock of the wonderful DivineBird Etsy Shop who not only helped at the booth, but also recruited many folks to come and knit on this never-ceasing-to-grow section.
We had folks come from all over New England to knit on Bigsock:
