Arm Knitting is my new obsession!
Once you learn how to do it, it's like second nature! Here are step by step instructions. The beginning is very easy, but I find that the finishing stitches can be a little tricky. Here is the youtube video I reference to when I need a little help remembering how to end the stitches : http://youtu.be/eClB0RpGBlo
I hope you try it!

    To end it, you basically are going to make double stitches.

    Instead of making a single stitch, you will grab the stitch behind the first and drop it off.

    After all the stiches are closed you will have a loop left. Pull your working yarn through and tie it off. At this point you want to connect the ends. I just lace the loose ends together and tie them off.
