what the heck are those?


what are these you ask?
they are huge
see my hands for reference
they are "knitting needles" made of pvc pipe
I kid you not


see? they are tall too.
my niece is letting me borrow them
to hopefully finish the FOUR afghans
I need for the nieces
yeah I KNOW.......I always tried to be the 
overachiever
(failed miserable though)


this is the one I am working on 
after the size 50 knitting needles with circular
came in
I waited and waited and had a hard time fitting
them on my other needles
I was afraid to lose stitches



see? It makes this chunky type pattern
because the yarn is so big
the nieces all love it
and wanted one
so I have a HUGE box of yarn
in my living room
yeah
where else do you put a box of 24 skeins?
lol



of THIS stuff.
I had gotten 8 skeins of it to try out
and started this one

and then it was on SALE online
and I got them for 7 bucks a skein!
they are normally TEN
so I was a happy girl
and got white
and another gray
and a light blue
and I think a beige color
I dont even remember but I think
the girls will love them 
IF
I
CAN
GET
THEM
FINISHED
IN 
TIME
FOR 
CHRISTMAS

I am thankful for great sales at just the right time.......

  2. I am just in awe of how big those are....I can barely knit a dishcloth that would be a bit intimidating.

  4. Love that afghan! Have you seen videos of people knitting with their arms?? If the needles are a bother, you have an alternative!
