We had SUCH a great time, and I was able to finish my scarf by the end of the weekend.
If you are looking for an easy (CHEAP), quick-fun craft, then I highly recommend purchasing a knifty knitter! You can purchase them at Wal-mart, Hobby Lobby, Michael's or various other places online. It took me a while to get started, but once I got the hang of it, the yarn and fingers started flying! I think you could easily finish a scarf in one weekend. Plus there are all kinds of youtube tutorials, patterns, and fun sites to help you along the way. I added some brown ribbon for a more finished look, but you can also add fringe (with the right pattern/tutorial).
Although I didn't get too fancy, provocraft.com was one of the best pattern sites I found. When I finally get around to adding a little more pizazz to my stitches...look out world!
This is a close-up of the loom. This is a scarf I'm working on as a Christmas gift (hence the super-secretive black & white).
Linking up to the following sites:
Let me know if you purchase one or are into knitting/crocheting! I'd love to see some more projects and hear your stories!
Love and quick fingers,
