When Japanese Twitter user Overtime Queen noticed the resemblance between Ultra-string Q gummy candy and yarn, she decided to postpone eating it and try knitting with it instead. Each piece of the citrus and soda flavored candy measures 126 cm (50 in) long, so she bought 15 packages - amassing roughly 18.9 meters (62 feet) of gummy candy and set to work knitting with a pair of chopsticks, using a standard stocking stitch (18 stitches across), resulting in a lovely scarf that’s 100% edible.
There’s no word on whether or not Overtime Queen ate her crafty confection, but she did resport that the process of knitting the gummy scarf made her hands smell delicious:“My hands smell like citrus soda and cola! They smell so good!”
After working on it for three hours, the completed scarf measured 25 cm x 15 cm (9.8 in x 5.9 in), and weighed 450 grams (1 lb). It may not be a long scarf, but it’s still completely awesome. We’d like nothing better than the opportunity to take a big bite out of it.
I want to make one. o_O
