World's Largest Blanket

The ladies at our church decided to take on the project of knitting blankets for the needy in the community. They decided to make the project more fun by seeing if they could knit all of the individual blankets into one big blanket and make the Guiness Book of World Records for the world's largest, hand-knitted blanket.

Their goal was to knit 250 blankets. They ended up with 360. The total size of the blanket (all 360 individual blankets knitted into one giant blanket) is 530 square metres. It weighs 332 kg! If Guiness accepts their entry, they will have beat the current record by leaps and bounds. Either way, the ladies of Hatfield Christian Church are amazing! And just so you know... even the South African flag is knitted.
