DIY Friday: Arm Knitting?

Okay, before I get into my real topic for this post, I just have to share this Lucy Neatby provisional cast on video. I was listening to old (2009) episodes of the KnitPicks Podcast where someone suggested this video, so I went to check it out. I seriously don’t know why it was so difficult before, but she explains it perfectly in this video. If you are confused as to how to provisionally cast on, watch it immediately. Or when you have a spare moment.

Now, on to today’s real topic: arm knitting. I’ve seen finger knitting before with yarn, but never one that uses your whole arm. I’m still not sure this is something I will be trying, but for those who want to try (or if you just want to see how this works) here is a good instruction video I found by Audra Kurtz of The Kurtz Corner. Here are her instructions for arm knitting:

Has anyone tried this before? Or even heard of it? Because “wandering” around YouTube was the first time I had ever seen it. I think. I may have seen it before and just forgot about. That does happen from time to time.
