Ever tried your hand, or should I say arm, at arm knitting? I needed a fast way to share a yarny craft experience with some non-knitters on a course I am running at the moment. It was quick and fun to do with no equipment requirements what so ever.
I watched a Youtube video here and chanced my arm. It was easy to make using Cygnet metallic seriously chunky left over from my girls hats. I ran the yarn twice to get the bulk required and used every last inch.
Out of the eight people at the class, six made scarves and the other three, who had babes in arms, made pom poms. I did not account for the fact that some people would not have both arms available!
Here are a couple of willing volunteers. They made them in about 35 minutes having never made anything before. They were very proud. The red one got a bit pulled as she kindly held a baby for another member of the group - the baby liked the feel of it too but the tension of this knitting soon finds its place again. Arm in arm we helped each other along.
The more observant of you may have noticed that I have finished my crocheted dress... more on that later.
Can I twist your arm to have a go?
I am all out of arm idioms. Chat soon. Jo xxxxx
