A brush with fame

Hey everyone,

Gettysburg/Musselman alum and fellow librarian Anne Kennedy just got a shoutout from Knitty.com!

From this post:

Socks for Soldiers: Anne Kennedy, Reference Librarian at Licking County Library, Newark, OH gives us a glimpse into history. She writes about the initiatives to knit socks for soldiers during the US Civil War.  Bonus: she includes a pattern for socks as printed in Scientific American magazine in 1861. Really!

Nice article, Anne!  And I can say “I knew you when…”

So cool! I'm trying to imagine knitting socks on size 00000 needles. Frightening! Yet strangely compelling...

Thanks :) It was certainly a surprise to see it on the knitty blog!
