As a person who works with yarn, this thing amazes me. It’s basically made from the same materials that I make pretty afghans out of, but it’s strong enough to lift entire sections of a building. Obviously it’s made of different kinds of fibers than my yarn, and this is much more tightly woven than anything I could ever make, but still… look what it can do:

Egg baskets. These were tucked away in a room underneath the chapel, left from the early days when the Mennonites converted a gym into a 2-story chicken house.

The little window opening into the old egg room under the chapel. Once or twice that room was used as the jail during a game of Persecution.
