Finger Knitting!
When I'm sick, I get bored. And this past time I was sick, I was in need of a present that Saturday. With one day full of boredom and a bag full of yarn, I've made a bundle of birthday accessories.

This is one of the two ways to finger knit, this way only requires one finger, the less complicated way for many. This technique can be used to make a flower.

Enjoy. (:
