Posts Tagged ‘Guinness Blob Jump Record’

Had an official e-mail recently from the folks at Guinness Book of World Records that they are backlogged due to technical problems, and I should expect to hear back from them within two weeks.

How Long IS It?

Luck o' the Scarf?

 

Meanwhile, as the scarf is now over 56 feet long, it means it:

 

* could stretch the length of a sperm whale (wonder how many times it could wrap around it?)

 

* could adorn the 50 Foot Woman, head to toe with extra length to wrap around her neck…

 

* is 17.0688 meters

 

* is about 18 yards

 

* is the length of the distance between high and low tides in the Bay of Fundy

 

* is the length of the Guinness Blob Jump Record

 

 

* the depth a snowplow needs to dig to open a road through the Japanese Alps in springtime – click here and scroll down for a cool photo!

 

Any other ideas for 56 feet?  Send ’em in!

 

Business-wise, Project Scarf moves forward.  I am looking into forming an LLC (and perhaps ultimately seeking non-profit status).  I am also working on developing school time programs and traveling educational programs for libraries, etc.

 

And, once again, a shout out to Jennifer Marsh of the International Fiber Collaborative and The Dream Rocket Project, who has been giving me some excellent guidance, and sharing her expertise. If you haven’t yet checked out her Dream Rocket Project, please do- it’s so cool!

 

Knit On, folks, and don’t forget to print and put up Project Scarf flyers!

 

Thanks!
