Festival record - largest knitted mittens

Biggest knitted mittens - 1.65 m long, 55 cm wide - were knitted by 7 women in Raubonys village (Pasvalys district) during the community craft festival "Vilnonės dienos" and Pasvalys town festival on 10-17 September 2016.

We knitted, knitted and finally knitted!
All day long at the Pasvalys Town Festival we were working hard to finish the gloves that we started to knit during the 2nd craft festival "Vilnonės dienos". They were so big that we barely had time to finish them during the Pasvalys City Festival. It took 20 hours to knit them! We knitted for 12 hours during the "Vilnonės dienos" Craft Festival and 8 hours during the Pasvalys City Festival. On the same day, the record-breaking gloves were presented to the public. Most of the suggestions were to use them as sleeping bags or as coats. Our Norwegian friends joked that they would be worn by trolls, but they would probably be used for photo shoots. It's great that we took the plunge and did it!

This idea has grown into a traditional event. Every year the festival evolves, improves, becomes more attractive and attracts new participants.
