Giant knitting time!

I've been seeing these giant roving blankets floating around on the Internet and have really wanted to give it a try myself. Problem is, where does one get such giant knitting needles? 

Luckily, I have a friend named Kyle. Kyle builds things, like this double neck cigar box guitar:

So when Kyle heard me trying to figure out how to get giant knitting needles, he did some thinking. Then he showed up to dinner the next night with these:

I went home and immediately cast on! Which was actually pretty hard to do. Once I got a few rows in though, it was really easy! 



Keeping an even tension is kind of hard. And I did have to knit standing up. BUT overall it's a blast to knit with these! Kyle made them out of pvc, which makes them really light. I'll probably have the blanket done today! 



Thanks Kyle!

  1. So sool! Wherever did you find roving with that big of a diameter?

  2. It's from a giant cake of roving I bought years ago on Etsy. I had barely put a dent in it until now!
