No I havent but I must try it! it looks complicated as you would have to be co-ordinated I think!

My daughter in law wants me to knit her a llama jumper as I have a garage full of llama wool still left from 6 years ago that either needs spinning, or is spun and ready to knit.

Perhaps that can be my next project.

I have never tried it....But it looks totally amazzzzing!!
The thought of being able to just use use your arms, and have something so lovely..

I seriously want to try this.
Very good . . . . LOL . . . given that my mind goes off at a tangent sometimes.

I heard of it a couple of years ago and I think it looks really amazing. Not for folks with weak bladders, I imagine. (¬‿¬)
by Rice
I had to think about the weak bladders, but I got it after a minute....isn't that good. LOL...LOL
by jonaja
That was my first thought too Rice.

oh gosh - i never thought of that either! im sure with such large stitches, you just slip them off!
by Finy
I believe the projects progress very quickly Rice. I think the yarn would probably be expensive.

No. Never tried it. I'm not the creative, crafty type. I did knit a jumper for my newborn son once, but it really wasn't for me. My dose of creativity is aimed at photography, cooking and writing. Otherwise the crafty gene skipped a generation. My Mum seems to like to knit. She has made almost a whole clothing store for my new grandson !!
I have heard of it but not tried it.
Like Rice , my concern was for frequent calls of nature. There is probably a technique for holding stitches on something other than the arms for breaks.
I don't know what I would want to knit with such a loose weave lthough I think it looks terrific.
I am wondering if perhaps these large projects are done quickly, given their size . . . or am I thinking back to front? LOL
by Rice
. . *ping* . . that was the penny dropping. LOL. Looking back at that lovely yarn, I can see that you would be quite right . . it looks expensive. I bet it's cosy.

I've never heard of it
by AJ
No, I haven't. I've heard of it but I've never tried it.
I havent heard or tried this, how loose are the stitches? Are the garments loose fitting and holy? looks fascinating though... should be a quick job...
I've never heard of it. It looks fun, but I imagine that you would need to sit for quite a while - it doesn't look achievable with 3 kids constantly at me...but as a project to do if I had a spare couple of hours I think it would be fun!
