Chunky knitting

I spotted this Panda Mega magnum yarn at the brilliant craft/ party supplies/ $2 shop in Bendigo on the weekend. The actual name of the shop is the rather boring "Variety Superstore" which comes no where close to describing the amazing range of yarn & sewing/ craft supplies they have in stock.
I had a legitimate excuse to go there and on behalf of a friend, because she was in need of a second ball of Cleckheaton California "circus", and I knew the shop would have some. But then I spotted this-

I just loved the tie-die effect neon colours, shown better here perhaps-

It is meant to be knitted with size 10 needles, but I my biggest were a set of 9's or 12's ( or one other set which are super duper large!). But since I always need to go up a size or two, I figured the 12's would suffice. You can see how big the needles are - and how chunky the yarn is, compared to the pencil, which I assure you is a regular school HB. LOVE the colours and the speed of this knit! I am making it for my niece - I bought the yarn, showed her, asked if she would like a scarf - luckily she said yes! Although now I am thinking I might kind of have to make another one just for me....

  1. It looks like absolutely crazy yarn - I love it! That's going to be one incredible scarf when it's done. And yes, you definitely need to follow it up with one for yourself.

  2. Finished it last night actually -NEVER knitted a scarf so quickly before! Will have to take some pics of the finished product, and look up what other colourways the yarn comes in. Very satisfying fast knit!
