Socks knitting champion found in Michigan
A woman has been honoured for her contributions to knitting and to something which will no doubt all lovers of footwear, it has been reported.

It all started with a sweater for Linda McGibbon, who made her first piece of knitwear in her fourth grade of school when she was the tender age of nine, which she made to prove to her mum that she would finish what she started, according to the Associated Press.

Now aged 59, Ms McGibbon is the winner of two awards for her sock knitting abilities.

The prizes, for most colourful socks and the "best in the universe", were given to her by yarn company Regia.

Last week, the Sir Peter Blake Trust asked people to don their socks in order to highlight the importance of clean beaches and waterways across New Zealand.
