While browsing Pinterest lately, I've come across a few things having to do with arm knitting. Arm knitting, you say? Yup, knitting...with your arms instead of knitting needles. While I'm not a knitter of any sort, I thought I could try this giant sized project. Kind of like those fist size crayons for toddlers (but their hands are so small, whaa?...). So I bought some yarn to give arm kitting a scarf a shot. And it sat in my kitchen for days. Finally one night I thought I better get to it before I don't even need a scarf anymore! I searched youtube for tutorials, and after a few confusing starts, I found one that explained it very well, and I totally recommend it if you'd like to give it a go yourself!
A lot of the tutorials used two strands of yarn at once to make the scarf turn out thicker, which I didn't know until after I bought one thing of yarn. It sounded like a good idea (although the tutorial I used didn't do it because she had such fluffy yarn), so I unraveled half of my yarn ball and made two rolls to go from. It turned out to be just about the perfect amount, with only a little bit left over.
So it's kind of sloppy, and not the prettiest knitting job ever, but I like how it turned out okay. This scarf is super soft and extremely cozy; it's really warm and comfy to just wear around my chilly house. :) I'd definitely be up to trying it again!
