As promised, I have photos of Jamie knitting with her giant needles.
|Jamie demonstrates how to cast on.|
|She cut T-shirts into strips and looped |
them together for "yarn."
|Jamie counts and arranges the stitches on the needle.|
|With any knitting project, the first row can be a bit tricky. Alice B.|
steadied the right-hand needle as Jamie knit the first row.
|Once started, the rug grew and grew.|
|The black bag contained more shirts for strips |
of lime green, gray, blue, and white.
The big needles were a hit at the Fiber Fest,
and were perfect for showing the knitting
process to beginning knitters.
