20. Here’s another demonstration of gigantic knitting.

21. And even if you don’t have enormous needles, you can always use your arms.

Arm-knitting is an incredibly fast and tactilely-pleasing way to whip up these huge projects for yourself. Wondering where to find such big yarn? You can buy it, or get creative by holding a ton of strands of more standard-weight yarn together at once (I think my record is 14) or by slicing up old sheets and t-shirts to make fabric yarn. The world is your oyster.

If you dig tiny knitting as much as huge knitting, then you, my friend, have just had your day made.
