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!
