Arm knitting sounds fascinating–there is always something new to learn in the fiber arts world!
And to think that I thought finger knitting was odd……now to find that there is such a thing as arm knitting!
kim Dawson says
I was surprised to learn my little local library in Anniston Alabama had a arm knitting class a week ago! I need to try it out…. I am a craft junkie 🙂
I loved to watch you arm knitting at VKL…..thank you!
I hope they start showing Knitting Daily in my area! Maybe I can learn arm knitting.
I haven’t done arm knitting yet, but it does sound intriguing. Wish I could watch Knitting Daily in my area…
Charmaine Shazier says
Loved the podcast and I look forward to watching the new Knitting Daily with Vickie. I have seen a few videos about arm knitting and may have to try it out.
Julie Slusser says
I haven’t seen the new season of Knitting Daily with Vickie yet, but I very much enjoyed listening to her interview today. Looking forward to trying some arm knitting 😀

Wish my local PBS station would air Knitting Daily. I have enjoyed following Vickie since her Knittty Gritty days. I love arm knitting. I made my nieces scarfs for Christmas and they loved them.
Two of my favourite people together what a great podcast. Enjoying arm knitting.
Bonnie Jane says
Thank you for sharing this information on Arm Knitting! I am anxious to try this.
D Louise says
Everyone seems to be talking about arm knitting. Sure wish I liked to wear cowls…
Arm knitting sounds great but I cannot see myself doing it. I am one that likes to KNIT socks & hats.Vickie is one person I would love to meet one day…she sounds so AMAZING!
Mary Kay Smith says
I have been watching this arm knitting trend since last fall, but Vickie has finally inspired me to try it!
I’ve heard of arm knitting and seen pictures of it but I have never tried it.
I am not sure what arm knitting is but it sounds suspiciously like something I did as a kid. Never leave a piece of string around me.
I watch reruns of Knitty Gritty for years and even wrote the network to bring it back so I am thrilled to see Vicki is back on Knitting Daily TV! Coincidentally, I saw an arm knitting video while searching YouTube for something else, but Vicki’s video is even better and inspires me to want to try it. Great interview! Thanks Marly!
I can’t imagine arm knitting. Going to have to check it out.
Miranda Gaines says
I was a huge Eunny Jang fan on Knitting Daily and was sad to see her go. I bought the new season of Knitting Daily with trepidation (I wasn’t able to watch Vickie on Knitty Gritty so I wasn’t sure what to expect). I was pleasantly surprised. She is very upbeat and such great fun to watch. I have seen some of the arm knitting craze going about but haven’t tried it myself as yet, though I’m looking forward to doing it soon.
I’m so happy that fiber crafters are so inventive and never stagnate. Arm knitting is just one more interesting twist in our craft.
Malinda Pelham says
Arm knitting looks like a lot of fun, on my to do list. Enjoyed the interview with Vicki Howell and glad she is back on tv.
I have yet to try arm knitting but look forward to giving it a whirl in the near future!! Great interview!! Thank you for the chance!!
Although it seems interesting, I think I’ll have to pass on the arm-knitting! I am way too busy already with my ever growing queue of knitting and crochet projects!
Great podcast with Vicki . I must try arm knitting which I have heard about but not actually seen the technique. Thanks, Marly.
What a fun interview! I’ve been watching Vickie since she starred on Knitty Gritty. I’m looking forward to watching her new show. I’ve seen her arm knitting craze on Facebook. Looks fun!
I want to try arm knitting sometime soon, as soon as I finish my current project(s). It looks like a lot of fun.
I experienced arm knitting in person with you at Vogue Knitting Live! Fast and fun!
