I've used them that fat, but never even WANT to use ones that long!

:rofl: :rofl:

You'd have to have Popeye forearms to hoist those things around. Imagine what you have to go through to start a new row? You could hurt someone!

I think it would be easier to turn yourself around the work rather than turning the work! She's actually knitting I-cord too, talk about bulky! LOL

I think it's been posted here before, but here are probably the biggest knitting needles. Ever. Held by two excavators. I'd hate to drop a stitch!

I remember seeing that one and thinking that men always have to do things bigger, using as much machinery as possible! :rofl:

Except for OUR men knitters HERE, of course. They're REAL men who are comfortable with their needles. :teehee:

Not to get off topic, but did you see that she is knitting a scarf out of I-cord on those big needles. what a cool idea for something a little different.

and the fact that she used this (http://www.astridsdutchobsessions.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=582&product_description=French%20Knitting%20Mill%20Wit h%20Handle) to make the i-cord with. How smart is that...

It's a neat idea! I surely would NOT like having to knit all that I-cord by hand. :shock:

They give a different meaning to the word 'row' - where's the boat? I didn't know whether she was knitting or goin' fishin'
