Preparing for Guinness

This morning I’m getting prepared for a record in Gunnies world records. I’ll take part in what will hopefully be a new knitting record – 1000 people (hopefully) will knit for 20 minutes (hopefully) at Madla Amfi in Stavanger at 13:00 today. They’ll be putting up an 865m serpentine bench and if I’m lucky I’ll get to sit or it might get a bit of an uncomfortable experience. I understand this is serious business with sign ups, registrations, t-shirts and police. It’s going to be fun though and hopefully they’ll be able to reach their goal; I’ll do my best and knit like the wind (probably more like a soft summer breeze).
I have unraveled a mitten I started knitting for grandson 2 years ago and have now started on a sock for him, just so I’ll have something to knit. I’m using 2 strands of baby wool which goes in the washing machine. I knitted a lot for daughter when she was little and used baby wool for years. It’s thin and comfortable and takes constant use and washing very well.

Maybe I should finish the cardigan I almost knitted for grandson as well. It was only missing the last finishes, but now I’ll have to unravel the top half and make everything longer. He has grown quite a bit and it’s too bad to just leave it laying there after all that work. You know how it is.-)
