Today I filed the paper work to get our Crochet Dishcloth Collection into the Guinness Book of World Records. On their website I searched “crochet” and came up with the longest chain crocheted while running a marathon and the largest afghan which was over 80 feet! I don’t think I would want to challenge that one! Did you know that it is free to file? I am going to see if I can get Lisa Gentry to join us in this challenge. She is the world’s fastest crocheter.
