Once again, I’m participating in The Pinterest Challenge – Winter Edition (I love these things!) with Megan from The Remodeled Life, Michelle from Decor and The Dog, Katie from Bower Power and Sherry from Young House Love.
The challenge is to pick a pin and use it as inspiration for your own project. Anything goes—a recipe, a DIY project, you name it!
I hopped onto my DIY Art and Projects and picked a project to knit an infinity scarf…cause I wanted an infinity scarf. I’ll try to do something more home related for the next challenge.
It looked like fun, you only needed your arms (!) and a spool of yarn, and the tutorial said it could be done in 30 minutes (!!!).I won’t go too much into the process since the tutorial videos are so thorough (plus my hands were tied up with yarn so it was hard to take pictures!).I picked this wool yarn and while it’s warm and soft, boy does it shed! And yes, I’m wearing a tank with my scarf. It just rarely gets that cold here and we’re going through a bit of a warm spell.
The only thing I did differently than the tutorial was using three strands of yarn instead of two to form my working yarn. And if I were to attempt this technique again, I would try keeping the yarn tighter around my arms to make the wholes in between smaller (i.e. a less loosely knitted scarf).
Have you ever tried arm knitting? Are you in love with infinity scarves as much as I am?
