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!
