Last November Caroline and Angela and I met at a coffee shop one last time before Caroline moved away. She gave us each a gift~ a finger knitted scarf she had made. I promptly put mine around my neck, then put it on my Christmas tree and now it’s on my mantle.
Angela couldn’t get enough of it and insisted that Caroline show her how she made them and of course, that led us to Maggie’s blog and Maggies’s Finger Knitting Tutorial. This is such a fun and easy project. And I’m not even going to attempt to show you how to do it when my friend Maggie has already done the work. Want to see it in action? Here’s a video:
Finger knitting is a perfect craft day craft because once you get the hang of it, you can just sit and talk. Angela brought buttons and paraphernalia for anyone who wanted to make a necklace, but, I’m working on making another garland so I can use it on our tree next year. Angela has an entire post showing different yarns she’s used and necklaces and scarfs she’s made from finger knitting.
