Lord, that is some ugly knitting. *shudder*. Learn to purl. Learn about gauge. Please.

I'm still wearing the Klein sweater my Grandma made years ago.
Can't figure out how to get it off.

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.

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...

Why knit one when you can get it in hand-blown glass?
