flash mob mentality

Of all of the hard work that led up to Sock Summit, I am most proud of the flash mob. Tina, Steph and Debbi love flash mobs, and they trusted me to come up with the moves to show we have the time of our life with yarn.

I had always said that if we had 20 knitters who learned the dance and showed up, I’d be happy. Actually, I told Steph I’d buy her a beer. As you can see, I owe her many, many beers, as we had over 600 people show up and participate.

Here’s Clara’s video (the best quality IMHO… another has almost 10,000 views!):

And if you’re really interested in learning it yourself and putting on your own knitting flash mob, here you go. Just remember to drop me a line and take pictures!

Thank you, everyone, whether you danced, cheered or just watched it online. In the spirit of the Summit, it was truly taking sock knitting almost too far.

    And because I hadn’t watched the flash mob today, I watched it again. I get chills each time I watch it and I wasn’t even there. I almost feel like i was.

    You should be proud, my friend!

    I wondered who had come up with the choreography. Not too hard, not too easy, but juuuuuuusssttt right! From my perspective way in the back, there were nothing but smiles and laughter and the feeling that we were participating in something that would bring smiles to the faces of Muggles who saw us.

    Great job!

    Wow! I wish I could have been there, but watching the video (over and over) tonight was a little taste of the fantabulousness it must have been. What a terrific job you did!

    I had chills while we were doing out dance…I get chills when I watch the video(s). This was the most fun I’ve had in years. Whoda thunk I’d be in a flash mob!?!

    Extremely Coool!!!

    I was at the SS with my sister and daughter. No matter where we went, my sister would tell people (on Amtrak, the Max, in a restaurant, our hotel) that we were gonna be in a flash mob. Then after – she continued, only changing it to past tense – we were in a FLASH MOB!

    Excellent work!
