Apparently they have heard about all the weight I have gained recently and are making me a skirt. Very funny girs, my can isn't THAT huge! (yet)

Or is it a mumu for an elephant?

What a waste of yarn... theycould have just boxed it all up and sent it to me if they wanted to get rid of it!!

:shrug: OK, I don't get it. A) what's the point other than to have your name on a world record B) if they wanted to do something as a group, why not use all that yarn to knit chemo caps, lapghans for nursing homes, baby hats for NICU wards or dog blankets for animal shelters. It just seems to be a huge waste of time and effort. It isn't like anyone can wear it (Statue of Liberty maybe) and no one will really benefit from it. All that yarn!

I agree w/you all! What a waste of yarn.

09-24-2007, 03:22 PM
I agree!

I don't know...maybe someone could live in it when they're done...:??

Same here! Why waste yarn like that?

Indeed a waste. Reminded me of the "socks" Hermione made for the house-elves.

Impressive, but I do have to agree that all that yarn could have gone to a much better cause - like chemo caps or blankets for the elderly. My husband made a joke the other night that I should take all of my stash yarn and knit the world's biggest sweater.
