This Christmas all the little nieces and nephews get hand crafted gifts. Most of last week was devoted to making them. Which makes a DIY arm knit blanket all the more appealing as it can be completed in an hour. But what is "arm knitting" you might ask? Basically, it's regular knitting in which you substitute your arms for needles. And it's PERFECT for beginners. As you can imagine, arms in needle terms are big. Really big. And that's exactly the reason we can whip one of these bad boys out in an hour. Simply Maggie, an arm knitting expert, explains the entire how-to in the video below.
