Sparkles took up knitting last year, thanks to Rose. Sweetie didn’t have an interest at the time. I desired for her to learn something in the way of knitting or crocheting. This was the perfect opportunity, a Little Flowers lesson in patience.
Sweetie took to finger knitting. It’s just her pace – fast craft with instant gratification.
She knitted a 49 in scarf in 30 min. Now she is begging for more.
Finger Knitted Scarf
- prepare yarn (18 yards was enough for a 49 in scarf)
- follow the directions in this video (it’s the best video tutorial that I’ve seen)
- 18 yards of yarn for 49 in scarf
- 1 skin of 300 yards – $10.99
Cost per scarf - $1.52
*My yarn supply is low and purchasing more is not an option. So, I have been making my own yarn—t-shirt yarn. I’ve raided my give-away piles for old shirts. I followed this tutorial to cut my shirts for t-shirt yarn. Be certain to give all family members fair warning. This is so fun that one can tend to go a lil’ crazy and no shirt will be let untouched. Dad has stashed away his favorites in fear that I might shred them.
