Now That’s My Kind of Knitting…..

Posted on

I have never been fond of knitting.  I am self-taught under duress.   When I was a senior at Drexel University, I decided to design sweaters and a knit skirt for my senior collection.  I was able to use a knitting machine for the sweaters (which I loved!), but the yarn for the skirt was just to curly and loopy to work on a machine.  So I bought a book and spent many hours knitting and unraveling and knitting again.  I finished the skirt, but decided that knitting was not for me.  That was until I discovered this on Pinterest.  It is called arm knitting and you use chunky yarn.  I made a scarf and actually had fun doing it.  The total project took 20 minutes.  Fun and fast?  That is a win!
