“Wow, I’m so impressed with myself!”, I said and heard my friend burst out laughing.  She taught me how to make an arm blanket, yes, on my two arms.  Back and forth, knitting from arm to arm, a simple loop weaves a beautiful blanket made of thick cozy yarn.  It’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it and you will be, like I was, so impressed with yourself!  You can mix and match the yarn, keep it simple or triple up to create a beautiful pattern.  This is my first one and definitely won’t be my last, it’s seriously addictive.

It’s a wonderful way to spend a few hours of mindless activity in front of great movie or sitting around with friends.  Since you are utilizing both arms, there’s no real opportunity for eating or drinking but that can be enjoyed post-knit in a celebratory fashion cozied up in new blankets.

And as everyone loves a new snugly blanket, this activity is for both sexes:)
