I made myself a little finger-knitted bracelet this morning from some Habu wrapped cotton that’s been sitting patiently on my shelf. I’d been thinking since Christmas about reprising that hot pink number I made with my niece, and am not sure why it didn’t occur to me until today that the Habu would be perfect. (I swear it sent me a telepathic message as I was waking up.) So that was a nice little five-minute fiber fix after too many yarn-free days lately.
If this gives you the urge to make your own and you don’t know how to finger knit, this nice lady on YouTube will teach you. I just held together three strands of the Habu. It would also be great with colorful kitchen twine, or jute, or even macramé cord.
I have enough of this Habu left to make two or three more of these (and not much else!), so let me know if you’d like one. If a bunch of you speak up, I’ll draw names or something. (Be sure you leave some form of contact info if I don’t already know how to reach you.)
That looks really cool! I’d like one! Are you selling them? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi — thanks! I don’t have any plans to sell them. Just thought I might as well make however many I can with what’s left, and share.
I would LOVE one, Karen. (BTW, I have a very small wrist.)

Thanks for sharing – I think this will be a fun thing to do with the grandkids. Handmade gifts are the best!
Definitely fun with kids. And you have a lovely name, by the way.
Thanks! I couldn’t sleep last night, so sat up in bed, grabbed the nearest ball of yarn (on my nightstand so I didn’t to reach far!), and fingerknitted a bracelet. (The “yarn” was a cord that Noro made about 10 years ago and worked well.) THEN I fell asleep.
Even better than counting sheep: finger knitting.
I just taught my grandson (nearly 7) how to do this. I had to explain & demo only once, then he was off. Thanks for sharing this!
so cute. i love these!
Hi, Kanna — thanks!
