I was intrigued by this "arm knitting phenomenon" right from the get-go. No, I was no knitting pro. Yes, I had knit my mom a bag for Christmas one year.

I love trying anything new, and I thought it sounded interesting. I came to find out right away that it was quite simple, which made me an instant fan.
