I've been obsessed with arm-knitting lately - it's so much fun and so quick! Great for a project you want to complete while watching an episode of a show or a movie. I purchased 2kg of some giant-yarn from WoolWow (the color I selected was "fog") to DIY an arm-knit blanket. For a 4'x5' blanket the wool cost roughly $233 (including shipping, etc.), but this seems like a steal compared to what these blankets can sell for ($545 at Loopy Mango).
Here's A Little How-To Video:
Start to Finish, this took under 45 minutes. The merino wool is so soft and the Final Blanket is so cozy and comforting that you just melt into it. I'm looking forward to snuggling up in this blanket on upcoming snow days! It also really adds some nice texture as throw over our leather couch. Overall, I'm loving it!

Notice that Marty barely moves within the whole 45min it took to complete this project :)
Gotta love him!
