close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

With Your Arms!

Did you know that Lisa can knit a cowl without using knitting needles? And she can do so in about fifteen minutes? Seriously.
Just one skein of Plymouth Baby Alpaca Magna makes this awesome cowl. 
Lisa cast eight stitches onto her arms with the yarn doubled, and then she knit until the yarn was gone and stitched it together. This seems to be the most popular arm knitting site, but there are plenty of resources and videos out there.

Sally ordered more of this lovely alpaca, so we should have a nice selection for you, but we have plenty of yarns in the shop that would be great. If you are in need of some actual, real-live last minute gifts, this might be your go to!
