So I went to grab coffee with my dear friends Nester and Caroline a couple weeks ago. Caroline surprised Nester and I with a gift. First of all if you want to talk my love language, it is gifts! I let everyone know well in advanced when my birthday is (February 17th) and secretly LOVEEEE to get presents for Christmas even though I tell my love ones that we are trying to simplify and I don’t need anything! Any who I pulled this beauty out of the bag and almost had a heart attack!
|Surely it had taken her days, months, years to make this beautiful knit wrap around necklace/scarf!?!? She must have stopped cooking and cleaning and taking care of her family in order to finish this amazing gift!?!? Right!?!?! I start firing questions at her, how did you make it, how long did it take, who taught you…….
She took a deep breathe and told me a little story about Finger Knitting.
This piece took her 1 hour! Yes, you read that right, 1 hour.
|I am having so much fun trying different colors and different types of yarn.|
|This one is sooooooo cozy!|
|I used a skein of yarn to make enough garland for the length of my staircase. Total time 1.5 hours!|
|I have been wearing these shorter ones as necklaces or even in my hair as headbands. They don’t hurt or give you a headache! These shorter ones only take about 10 minutes!|
|and you can add your favorite accessory!
Thank you Caroline for sharing! I love it!!! Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas!!!
