Here is mine:
I wanted to knit my husband longjohns for his birthday. I wasn't sure what size to knit, so I measured his neck and found it was 13 inches long. Whoa! I had no idea he was so thick. I printed the layout but didn't have enough yarn in my crap room, so I made a special trip to the Hypnotic Yarn website. With all my supplies ready, I was finally able to cast on. It took me 52 months! But it was worth it, because in the end the pants looked tiny. He loved it! When he wore it to the champagne brunch everyone said he looked repulsive in it, and boy was I relieved to hear that! I'm just glad nobody mentioned his extra large hands!
