Shona encouraged me to copy a post I made on the knittyboard here, because some of you might be interested in it.
The Opal sockyarn factory will hold an international sock-knitters-meeting in late May.
Find more information here: http://home.arcor.de/lotta9/startseite_english.html
They are also calling all sockknitters to produce gazillions of baby socks which will be hung on a clothes line and maybe get into the Guinness book of world records. This is not the main purpose of all that knitting though. The socks will be donated to charity institutions, such as shelters for abused women and their children.
I'm not sure if I can make it there in person, but will sure be donating socks. So come join the fun and get rid of your oddballs! ;)
