Yep. I can't do anything with it, but I can't bear to throw it away either. I would frog it and knit it again, but I'm deathly afraid of the yarn now. *sigh*

Lion Brand chunky is acrylic, so it's supposed to be dried in a dryer, or it stays stretched out. Did she lay it flat to dry? I read somewhere that acrylic yarns stretch out in the wash so MUST be dried in the machine.

She dried it in the dryer. Then *I* washed and dried it in the dryer. It's still hugenormous.

Next time you run into a very large person, you'll be all set with a gift!

Yes, but with a boob job, it would fit you!

My poor sis would have to go on an all fat diet to fit into it.
