Oh, I am SO learning how to finger-knit and finger-crochet.
Alyssa Lynn shows on her Youtube video How to Finger-Crochet the beautiful blanket she made. . . with her fingers and yarn.
I’m VERY inspired!
I’m also thinking this is a good way to let Abbey get her hands on yarn in a creative way. . . without involving knitting needles. If you’d have seen Abbey at our neighbor’s yesterday wielding a skewer for fondue. . . you’d know why knitting needles might not be the best thing for Abbey to have just yet!
I first learned about finger knitting in the comments section of Rachel’s post on how to make paper lanterns on her blog Clean. (The Lusa Organics Blog) . . . and then Googled finger-knitting to see what it was all about. It’s super simple, and I’m excited to teach Abbey.
I myself am really excited about finger-chrocheting a blanket. I mean, how cool is that blanket Alyssa Lynn made? Neat.
Have you ever finger-knitted or used your fingers to crochet?
What activities do you like to do with your preschoolers to engage their creative and constructive side?
