Largest Knitting Needles

"The largest knitting needles measured 3.5 m (11 ft 5.8 in) long and had a diameter of 8 cm (3.15 in). Ingrid Wagner (UK) used the needles to knit a tension square of ten stitches by ten rows at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, on 10 March 2008." -Guinness World Records

And I thought it was hard to knit with size 50 knitting needles... Way to go Wagner! (See a photo of the completed swatch with the needles and the knitter at the Record page.)
