Giant Knitting has been around for a long time, with many people remembering the use of one large and one small needle to make holey knits in the 70's and 80's. Over the past few years it has enjoyed a resurgence with the popularity of super chunky knits. 

Personally I could never seem to knit with normal needles but was able to get going with these straight away. They are heavier than normal needles due to their size so just keep that in mind when ordering.
