Knitting Rings
Has anyone ever tried using these knitting rings/circles? The rings with pegs in them that allows a person to knit/weave together yarn without using needles...

I'm considering trying them out to make an afghan for a Christmas gift and have no idea how well they work, etc.

I have never used them, but Ive seen a BUTTLOAD of them at Michaels lately...

And, your post just brought back a memory of doing some kind of "finger knitting" at camp...does anyone have a more specific idea of what i might be remembering? I remember weaving the yarn in between my fingers...

Well we have a set at our house plus my wife's crochet stuff my knitting needles... and to boot we have a knitting machine too.

I' mostly asking because the scarf for my father's gift is taking me longer to do than I was hoping.... not had the time to work on it, and I'm trying to think of ways to cut time for the afghan down.

OK those instructions make no sense to me But finger knitting is described in Melanie Falick's Kids Knitting book. It's basically making loops and pulling yarn over them. Its just a way of getting you used to the idea making loops before you actually start knitting.

I remember spool knitting as a kid. It basically made an i-cord. We had lots of fun making loooooooong snakes of knitting and not doing anything with them beyond that!
