The Knifty Knitter

       I have no idea what magic has fallen upon us, but lately, I feel like I have had some more time for crafting which really makes me happy.  Last weekend, some girlfriends and I purchased some knifty knitters and got together for an evening of pizza, baby-cuddling, and knitting kniftily!  


     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,

My wife has gone crazy knitting. She just finished her first big project -- a shawl. Next on the list is a wrap, followed by a baby blanket for her maid of honor.

Holls you have to help me with my knifty knitter. I crochet, but want to knit, so I bought some of these last year and have failed miserably. I am uber crafty... but can't figure these out! We might have to meet up. We should do that anyway, but bring yarn.
