Laura Birek makes huge blankets with giant knitting needles!

Giant Needles Just Sound Scary

The yarn she uses comes in balls bigger than her cats. At first she couldn’t find tools big enough to knit yarn that size. She tried broomsticks, but even those were too small!

She had to make her own knitting needles using giant PVC pipes. The final product ended up five-feet-long!

Laura makes blankets out of the giant yarn she calls “Giganto-Blankets” that basically looks like mega scarves for your bed.
