I have been hearing so much buzz about arm knitting that on the first day of the snow storm, with not one customer to be had, my dear friend and I got out the ol’ Ipad and logged on to YouTube!
After a little trouble with the cast on….I think we are on to something
Definite Success! I used two skeins of Cascade Yarns, Pacific Chunky and absolutely love the result. It is so soft, loosely woven and very comfy
Day 2 of the snow storm….Arm knitting is a little addicting! The wheels are turning thinking of all things I could cast on to my arm and call it knitting. I wondered how multiple strands and different textures would look.
Behold, leftover yarn from a Mountain Colors afghan kit! Perfect!
Completely different from the 1st one, but loved this result too!
Things are getting deep around here
Day 3 of the snow storm….I must travel and share my new addiction! I convinced my youngest that he needed to ride along with his yarn CrAzEd mother and bundle up, we did. We traveled over the hills and through the woods to the grandparents house.
Lucky for my parents…..WE MADE IT!!!
I convinced my mother she would love it as well and we went on a hunt through her stash. JACKPOT! Yarn from 30+ years ago that was half knitted into a sweater, never to see the light of day again!
5 strands of worsted weight all in earth tones was sure to be the perfect infinity scarf. Really mom, trust me As I was helping her to get herself all tied up with yarn, I’m sure she had her doubts BUT this too, worked up beautifully
SO MUCH FUN!
