OMG 1 1/2" PVC pipe! That's extreme knitting! Nice effect from it.

No kidding! And I thought knitting with anything over a 10 was like knitting with bats!

Two teams of four each, two to a needle, and whichever team manages to knit and purl drops down exhausted. I guess one person can do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5voV033GJXY The video looks like it belongs in a comedy farce on knitting but the end result is pretty cool. I admire the creativity and ingenuity. I'm not that dedicated to extreme knitting I guess.

Thanks and wow! I'm just glad she doesn't take her knitting with her on the subway.

That blanket is lovely, but talk about a toe-breaker! You and your spouse, all the kids, and the next door neighbors would have to help you move it from one place to another--cause there's no way you could sleep under it without having your toes smashed!

Good luck with the extreme knitting challenge. Would love to see your finished project!
