I just got a new book, or should I say blook (not only because it has the letter
, but because I just learned this word–a book based on content from a blog
Which came from the blog Flax and Twine. I was excited to give it a try. I learned to finger knit way back when I was in a parent-child class at the Chicago Waldorf School with my daughter, Gabi. She was three at the time (she’s twenty-one now). I also learned to knit in this class. Since then, I’ve taught knitting, both the finger kind and the needle kind, in my parent child classes. I’m not a great knitter, but I know the basics. Anyhow, this just looked like too much fun. And I had some pencil roving I bought on e-bay a long time ago that needed a project.
And I decided to start with something easy, so I made this cowl:
It only took about an hour to make, even with help
although winding the roving into balls took almost that long, too.
I didn’t take any other photos while I was working on it because, well because I was rather tied up (ha-ha).
It was fun and fast! I’ll definitely do it again. I have some yarn I spun that I might try this with. If I do, I’ll post an update with photos. If you want to try it, here are some arm knitting tutorials.
Don’t forget to check out the A to Z blogging challenge. I’ve found lots of interesting new blogs from the hopping part of it.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
