Last Sunday in my city, Trieste, a group of crafters gathered to realize the biggest knitted blanket in the world for the Guinness Record! And they DID IT! It was amazing! I was working so I didn't get the chance to be there in person to see it but I took this picture from facebook to show you :)

There even was some rain when they had to grab the blanket until the rain stopped (very early fortunately!). I know ladies have been knitting form whole Italy to partecipate! Plus people could donate money to charity to receive, at the end, a patch of the blanket.

Amazing! :)

That's a lot of yarn. I wouldn't have wanted to try to move it fast, it has to be extremely heavy.

That's incredible. I can't imagine any blanket that large, especially knitted. Lots of knits and purls!
