Knit In Public Day!

Saturday, June 13th is Knit in Public Day!   What a great motor coordination activity for all ages and it is relaxing! Knitting can be a lot of fun and you don't just have to use knitting needles.  You can knit with your arms or fingers! 

Don't feel like you have to jump into knitting a scarf!  Start small with knitting a small fidget toy or zipper pull for your bookbag or jacket.  You can knit a keychain or maybe a pot holder.

Finger Knitting

Grab your favorite color yarn and a comfy spot to sit.  Watch this video for step by step instructions on how to knit with your fingers.
