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?

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!
