I'm still wearing the Klein sweater my Grandma made years ago.
Can't figure out how to get it off.comment:www.metafilter.com,2005:site.44222-1010536Fri, 12 Aug 2005 07:52:19 -0800weapons-grade pandemoniumBy: Goofyy

I put water in my klein bottle, but it shrank to nothing. I think this person should be forced to wear ceramic sweaters, just to create cosmic balance.comment:www.metafilter.com,2005:site.44222-1010580Fri, 12 Aug 2005 08:16:45 -0800GoofyyBy: kamylyon

This is neat as hell, greasy_skillet.
I'd not seen the previous post and was happy to see yours.
As for ugly? This is gorgeous stuff, p'raps you just don't appreciate the beauty of the math... ;)
Seriously though, I recently finished a really long [close to 11 feet long] mobius scarf for one of my sons and it was nowhere near as difficult as this girl is making it out to be. Of course all I did was knit the ends together...comment:www.metafilter.com,2005:site.44222-1010698Fri, 12 Aug 2005 10:33:10 -0800kamylyonBy: Johnny Assay

Why knit one when you can get it in <a href="http://www.kleinbottle.com/">hand-blown glass</a>?comment:www.metafilter.com,2005:site.44222-1010787Fri, 12 Aug 2005 11:47:34 -0800Johnny Assay
