Arm knitting....

This was just wayyy tooo fun! I've needed a kick in the pants for a long time to get my fiber mojo back and this project was just the thing to do it. I was wandering Pinterest one day and came across this link in the DIY section. Out of curiosity, I followed it and was instantly interested in trying it. So off to Michael's for a quick purchase of super bulky yarn(Cozy Wool by Loops and Threads) and couldn't wait to get started. The entire project took under an hour. That is binding off and sewing the ends of the scarf together. talk about instant gratification! I'm just sad I didn't find this earlier in the year when I was searching for Christmas gifts, I think my college-age DD and friends would have loved getting these in various colors.
  So, here is the link Arm Knitting and good luck and have fun!
 Wanna share in a little celebration with me? An editor from the magazine Crochet Today contacted me and wants to use a picture of my Joplin Vest in an upcoming issue of the magazine.  My non-fiber friends just don't understand how excited I am that the magazine took notice of me and my little blog. Wheeeee!

You can see it's creation here: Caroline's Joplin Vest
