I’ve been pretty slack on crafting lately but I had a little extra free time tonight and thought it’d be fun to try a quick project. I browsed my Pinterest boards and noticed I’d pinned several tutorials for arm knitting so that’s what I chose to do.
I dug out some wool that I’d been planning to use to knit a scarf and started following one of the tutorials. I’m not sharing the link because I think that’d be bad form.
|Here's the partially finished scarf wrapped around my neck. |
Please ignore how it clashes with my sloppy t shirt.
It was pretty simple and quick to do, and after about 10 minutes I had a pretty long scarf hanging off my arm. The only problem was that it looked horrible. I thought that possibly by wrapping it around my neck it would look better but it turns out I was wrong. Then I thought maybe I didn't like it when I wrapped it around my neck because it wasn't full enough. I wrapped it around my arm three times to see if it'd look better. Nope. Still ugly.
|That mess is supposed to be a scarf. Gross.|
Instead of trying to problem solve I just pulled it apart and called it a fail because, really, I’d only spent 10 minutes and wasn’t invested in the project. I still think arm knitting has the potential to be cute. I’m guessing that if I used thicker wool, doubled it up, or made the knitting tighter, it would have worked out better.
