just another yarn night and a new way to cast on while knitting/ arm knitting

 Here is a photo from last night  at the yarn meet up. Can you guess which coffee shop it was at? I was asked to show how to arm knit and at first no one really thought it would be as easy as it was! I used left over balls of yarn. That were bulky, you can also use 4 strands of 4 ply or mix it up! The yarn above is Red Heart Ribbons and Red Heart with love, and wow is it a soft fun scarf!
Here is another photo in better light the I took this morning .

To make this you just cast on 4, until last night I only ever used the long tail cast on, however my friend Sharona showed me her favorite way to cast on and I filmed a quick video with my tablet this morning to show you... forgive the tank top because I am MELTING here in socal I think I may end up 3 sizes smaller due to this nonstop heat!
Above is the new cast on and below is the long tail with full tutorial
Also I found the project I originally used the Red Heart Ribbons for

E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook.

Make a magic circle

Round 1
Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

Bottom of the cross
When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.
