I have knit in front of this man for 4 years. I have crocheted in front of him for more than 30. I have sewn and quilted and spun and not once, not once, did his eyes not glaze over and his mind not wander somewhere else while I prattled on effusively. (It's OK. I do it when he talks hunting and such)
I took one corner and held as much as I could, as wide as I could and then held the rest up.
Mr. Needles eyes did not glaze over. He was almost impressed.
Big. Did I mention that it is BIG?
