I made 2 finger-knit scarves last night in a couple of hours. Extremely simple, not anything exceptional to look at... But I had just heard of finger-knitting, so I had to try it. I used Caron's Bliss (cotton candy) which is one of the softest yarns I have ever touched in my life.

My point, and what I'm hoping someone here will understand (because no one around me does), is -- making these scarves was an amazingly sensually pleasing experience. :heart:

Am I weird or what? :blush:

If you're weird, I'm weird. I find that the entire experience of handling the yarn and needles is a total package. I was sitting there knitting yesterday and just reveling in the feel of the yarn travelling across my fingers. I even was wondering if there were acupressure points in the hands that caused it to make me feel so good.

You're definitely not alone!

My husband has teased me in the LYS before, because of the way I look when I "pet" the yarn!!

That's why we coined the term YARNGASM. ;)

It seems that knitters' obsessions with yarn porn and alpaca addictions, etc. have been practiced mostly in guilty privacy in the past. But these conditions are now being discussed publicly, helping men and women come to terms with their lust for fiber arts. KH is doing its' part in fostering global understanding.

This is where I went to figure out how to do it. I'd suggest using some bulky yarn that really feels GOOD! :inlove:
