Summer Fun for Everyone: Finger Knit Bracelets

I’m guessing that knitting isn’t high up on most of your lists for summertime fun.  But I’m here to change your mind.  In fact, I’m at eHow this week talking about the perfect summer knitting project: finger knit friendship bracelets.  

 

 

As the name implies, this is a needle-free type of knitting suitable for kids of all ages.  It’s a great way to get your littlest little ones in on the summer-friendship-bracelet-making fun and it promotes fine motor skills to boot.

 

 

You really only need two things to be successful with this activity: fingers and yarn.  But there’s plenty of room for creative adornments too.

 

 

Head over to eHow for a complete visual tutorial (with no less than 16 photos of my freakishly wrinkly hands – did I not drink water at all that day?) and get it on the fun!

love your blog and read all the time, but I just have to say: No body snarking when you are a mom! How about *Look what cool things these hands can do* instead of Look how wrinkly these hands look.

Other than that…craft on!

RP – I totally see your point but I was actually just making a joke about my hands on that particular day, which were “freakishly wrinkly” for some reason. They don’t normally look like that and it was on my palms not the tops of my hands so I wasn’t worried they looked like I was old, more like I’d been taking a 10 hour bath ;).

I love this! I used to finger knit when I was younger and really should make some of these for myself-so pretty and simple!
