Fingerknitting is the latest craze in the Netherlands (Holland) at the schools. Sounded like fun and therefore I had to try it. So I went to Youtube and found the instructions in english.
This is the frontside.
This is the backside, which I folded open so you could see it more clearly.
This is the backside in his 'natural' state.
For this experiment I used merino wool with pink organic cotton but you can also use just one thread. You can use this technique to make a bracelet, a scarf, a belt or you can incorperate it in another project. For me it could be in a painting in the style of Jim Houser. Maybe you have a totally different idea how you would like to use it, let me hear about it.
Have a lovely, experimental day!!!
