...knit big. yesterday i started off the Whitworth's 'Big Scarf Knit' on these huge knitting needles that i got over two years ago from a crafting show. I thought i would knit a rug or something with them then but all they did was become big drumsticks that the mister and lads played with. finally they now have a job and are doing it very well. i am using seven different strands and colours of wool at a time and it grows super fast. Come along next Thursday evening to the Whitworth Art Gallery to see it, knit one pearl one and add to the 'Big Knit' - and meet the Manchester Craft Mafia.
