Arm Knitting | Free Tutorial

Finally finished it!! Check it out here.

There has always been one weakness in my crafty skill set…knitting! I once tried to make a scarf, using the most basic of stitches and knitting in a straight line, I couldn’t do it! The scarf went wonky at the ends, I got terribly frustrated and gave up! I just can get my head around how knitting works and the muscle weakness I have in my hands also doesn’t help manipulating knitting needles!

But seeing beautiful chunky knitted blankets on Pinterest sparked my interest so much that I thought I’d try my hand at knitting once again! And when I say ‘hand’, I mean it quite literally!

I found this fab tutorial on youtube for arm knitting by Simply Maggie! It’s a brilliant video, her instructions are so  easy to follow! Plus, her dog in the background is so cute! What’s even better, there is not a knitting needle in sight!

I only bought a couple of balls of yarn to try it out first, so I don’t have enough to finish the blanket. I need to order more so I’ll put some photos up once it’s finished, but here it is so far!

    1. It’s gorgeous yarn, really soft! I’m actually surprised how easy it is to knit! As I don’t have enough yarn to finish it in one go, I’m using my hubby’s dumbell bar to sort it on with a weight on each so it doesn’t fall off! He’s really pleased about that!! X
