Knitting Help Needed

Hey! I need a bit of help with a knitting project. Here are the deets:

Halifax Crafters want to cover a telephone pole outside of the Olympic Centre for our December Market (December 5 and 6!).

I've volunteered to cover this (pun completely intended), but that's a lot of knitting in three weeks - especially since I'm also trying to get ready for the show. So I'm looking for any knitters/crocheters who want to help cover a telephone pole - maybe even the stop sign pole if there is time. I'm looking to do something similar to the awesome folks of Knitta Please or The Ladies Fancywork Society (among many others). If the project is successful, it could be the start of other yarn graffiti around HRM (I have some other projects in mind).

What I need is a chunk of knitting or crochet (any style/any colour/any yarn - although you probably don't want to use your good stuff) as big as you feel like making it. Yarn Bombing's Universal Measurements say that I'll need 42.75" circumfrence and we'd like to see it about six feet tall. So if you or anyone you know feels like knitting, that'd be awesome. If you want in, I just need your piece by Friday, Dec. 4 (you can email me about a drop off - crafty [at] hellopineapples [dot] com). It'll be on the telephone pole first thing on the morning of Saturday, Dec.5 and you can go admire your handiwork. You can even help with the installation if you're so inclined.

If I end up with more knitting than is required to cover the telephone pole, it'll go towards another project - but that one is Top Secret and not for blogging about (not right now anyway).
