When I was a kid, I used to finger-knit...a lot! I never used yarn though but rather embroidery floss from all the friendship bracelets I made. I had forgotten all about finger-knitting until I came across this post from Gussy Sews blog. I highly recommend you check it out! It was so easy to make this garland while watching some good 'ol Boob Tube! Plus your 8+ kiddos can join the fun. I plan on making some sparkly garland for Christmas, but lets not push it...pa pa push it real good. Ok, I'm showing my age again with some Salt 'N Pepa.
I hung my garland in the front room and added the sweet paper heart doilies. I love the word doilies. Go on, say it 10x's fast, it's fun! Then added some doilies to the windows.
As you can see in the above photo, it is not a tight knit and is very forgiving. So grab some yarn and go here to get instructions and get knitting!
