Extreme Knitting - 1,000 Strands

Well, I just don’t even know what to say about this one except :thud:


I guess that’s one way to use up the old stasharoony!:teehee:

That was amazing! Thanks for sharing!

omg that must be gauge 5000 lol. Although other then bragging rights what’s the purpose? lol how to make a blanket in 5 rows

Yeah, ok, looks really practical but I wouldn’t wear a pair of socks made that way.

What a great piece of conceptual art that would be in a museum. I believe my non knitting friends would enjoy this. Thank you for sharing.:cheering: :yay:

All I can say is…WOW. That’s amazing!


I hope no CATS ever get loose to play in there!

Rachel John goes round the some of the stitch and craft shows in the UK. I bought a pair of needles off her! She’s really nice and enthusiastic, and her extreme knitting pieces are really lovely :yay:


:eyes: OMG…NO WAY!!!cloud9

I have 2 things to say:
#2…that must have cost of fortune in yarn to make

Wow. Just wow.

:roflhard::roflhard: What happens if she drops a stitch. That would be a heck of a crochet hook. :roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:

Wow. That is amazing, and beautiful!

You know what I would have loved to see?
1000 strands of yarn spun into the world’s fattest singles
on a six-foot long hand spindle – and then knitted.

Performance art!

That was fun. Am I the only one that found the cascade of strands more beautiful than the finished product? As an interior design student, it gave me some inspiration for curtains, bed canopies, and such that may make an appearance in my next project. My professor will think my knitting obsession has taken me off the deep end!

I guess art is truly in the eye of the beholder. I only ask: Why? Good way to build up some muscle while knitting. :wink:

Interesting? Yes. Unusual? Yes. Extreme? Yes.

Pointless? Most definitely.

If that’s what she uses for one project, can you imagine the size of the rest of her stash??? :noway:
