forgive me if you may have already spotted this work by Sebastian Schonheit, but i am completely fascinated not only by the amazing knitted carpet, but more importantly by the sheer size of the needles he has used!  i'm what is known as a "thrower" knitter - can't do this other fancy knitting stuff, but  how the heck would one hold the needles, throw the yarn (or in his case, rope) and still have perfect tension?
you can read more of this work here
in the meantime, i'll just go back to using my size 4mm needles then.

Good question! I hadn't thought about the nightmare of trying to maintain an even tension with those.
