LOL, I'd love to know how their sales are. Of course, if I used one, it would be full of crumbs nestled in those stitches.

My hands would cry trying to knit something that chunky. But then again, it would take about 10 minutes, right?

I think she uses her hands as needles. I can't remember what it's called, but somebody posted here about it a few months back... I think it was Ceil!

Looks like pure roving, no twist or very little twist at all. Wonder how they hold up.

Ah, yes, arm knitting. But to make a king size throw? Still, Wow!

To each her own ... it looks okay as a giant throw/bedspread, I suppose, but to me that big chunky stuff is way overpowering for most human figures; I personally do not like it for babies, especially.
