I remember when I was little, we had a bunch of those for a pot-holder loom that I used to wind around my fingers and make these long strings. That may have been finger knitting?

Ok... well that pretty much convinces me... I'm gonna have to try this and see how it goes... I figure once I get it started I'll post pics, etc in my blog. May be a little bit before it gets going...

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...
There's some waldorf knitting thing that teaches that...bet if you google it you could find it.

I have a Knifty Knitter set. my coworkers taught me about it when they were making chemo caps. mom bought it for me last year. I like it and have made quite a few hats to match scarves, tho I'm ready to try knitting hats now.
I taught Dyl how to make a hat on one, he had fun.
my best childhood friend bought a set to make hats. hopefully next time she visits, I can teach her how to make a tubular scarf on it. she has no desire to pick up needles. not yet at least. I bought her a Knit Knack kit and will buy her some yarn to practice on.

That is pretty neat. My kids have been asking me to teach them to knit but they are just not ready. I think they might be actually able to do that! I may pick one up at Micheals with my next coupon and try it out!

I wanted to take a moment and do a follow-up on this thread.

Long story short... i did some reading and examing of the rings for using them for knitting... I decided to skip them altogether and just use the needles.

I did get some for my kids. They are super easy to use. Even my 4 yo is making a hat. That said, I don't like them for me. I would much rather knit...but if you have kids that are too little to have the fine motor skills necessary to knit, but is really wanting to try. this may be an answer.
