There is a new trend that has been going on in the knitting world and it is called
Here are my thoughts about it.
1) I think it is something that some yarn company invented as a way to use up a lot of yarn. Knitting with "needles" the size of your forearms take up a LOT of yarn. Another reason I think a yarn company invented it is because it is "trendy" and people will want to try it so they...buy yarn...duh!
2) I think it is butt-ugly. I am sorry (if you are one that likes it) but seriously, it is UGLY. Would you really, really wear something like this out in public ?
What about this?
Good grief - she looks she is choking !
3) The finish product, doesn't really look "knitted" - it just looks like a big mess of yarn wrapped around your neck - maybe it looks a little like you tried to braid it but it doesn't look knitted.
4) Once you start a project, you pretty much have to finish it - it isn't like knitting needles, you can't lay it down and pick it back up - I mean the yarn is all wrapped around you arms. What if the phone rings? What if the baby cries? What if your 4 year old knocked over a glass of milk? You would have to either not assist or mess up your knitting. Crazy!
I think you get the point. Now if you are looking at this and thing "Gee, that is kind of pretty" - well...I can't help you with that but you can learn how to arm knit by watching this video.
