Finger Knitting

So I put a picture on Instagram of me doing some finger knitting. I wasn’t even going to write a post on it, but then I kept getting e-mails from people asking about it. Shows how clueless I can be, eh? To say that knitting is foreign to me is an understatement, so I was pretty skeptical that this would work. Well by-golly it did!

No, I will not be giving you a tutorial. I’m just not that good at it yet. I watched a few different tutorials, and I think this one is the best! She goes nice and slow and is very clear in her directions. Feel free to watch this if you need some guidance. 

I played around with it to see how I wanted to use it around the house.

I settled on a little scarf for my vase. And yes…my house is in “winter mode”. No major Christmas items, but when you’re buried under a couple of feet of snow, it just doesn’t feel right to put the cozy decor away just yet. Finger knitting scarf
