Finger Knitting

Today....I watched a tutorial on how to finger knit! So, I taught myself from the tutorial...and then I taught Madelyn as well! It's such a fun thing to do and Madelyn reallllly enjoys it! :o)
(I am putting a tutorial of it at the end of this post if you would like to learn how to do it!)

Here's a few we have made so far....I made the red and black ones and Madelyn made the multi-colored one! Didn't she do a great job? She gave it to my MIL! :) You can use them to hang somewhere or as a scarf or belt or anything! :)

Here's a second one Madelyn is working on....

And...Jaxson HAD to have his picture taken too...LOL...so here ya go...my blue-eyed sweetheart....

And here is the tutorial on how to do it if you are interested......(it's a tutorial I found online....not made by me!)




Many of you have asked about our woodstove..I will make up a post about that soon! :o) Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
AND...my sister is having a giveaway on her blog!!!! You can enter by going to THIS post! Best of luck!!! :o)

  8. I once read a post somewhere from a person who finger knitted, and then folded the 'string' she got, like a harmonica..

    That way, she stitched the pieces together and made a 'real', thick scarf ;)

    greetings from the netherlands!

  18. I love that you took a picture of your wood burner!! I would KISS a wood burner, if I could get my hands on one. We pay a fortune in heat! :)

  19. I never heard of it either. Cool. I'm sure there is a way to connect many of those to make a scarf or if you were really good..a blanket!
