Arm and Finger Knitting: 35 no-needle knits for the home and to wear
That cover looks so awesome! The book is full of great projects, and it is categorised into four parts: Arm Knits for the home, Arm Knits to wear, Finger Knits for the home, and Finger Knits to wear. The book offers a great introductory overview of the techniques that are used for all of the projects. The photos are very clear, and frankly they make me want to grab some yarn and knit, like, NOW! So what do I think of this book?
Breaking free from the constraints of normal needle sizes, Laura Strutt demonstrates how to do all the usual stitches and techniques using just your arms and hands, from plain knit stitch to seed stitch, increasing and decreasing, and knitting with two or more strands of yarn at a time. To make the best use of the unique texture and scale of no-needle knitting, she has designed 35 stylish projects for you to make, for the home and to wear. There are stylish arm-knitted scarves, and throws, but also a simple stool cover, a stylish gilet, and a shawl you can knit in under an hour. Using finger knitting, you can quickly create place settings, a bath mat, and even a necklace. A photographically-illustrated step by step guide to techniques covers everything you need to know, from casting on to cabling, clearly and simply. Laura Strutt is a passionate designer and enjoys knitting and crochet, as well as dressmaking, quilting, and hand-lettering.

I admit, I'm not a huge fan of arm knitting. The stitches are so big, they just don't appeal to me. But as I said when I reviewed Mary Beth Temple's arm-knitting book a year or two ago, it has its place, especially if you have to knit something like a prayer shawl very fast. And using your arms or fingers in place of knitting needles is really popular among youngsters, as I understand it. Laura Strutt has written a book with 35 no-needle knits for the home and to wear called "Arm and Finger Knitting," published by Cico Books. In my opinion, the most successful patterns in this book are generally blankets, and tote bags.
