    • I know, right?!? … and he’s just so “normal” about his techniques 🙂 I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying this video ❤

    Okay, if I seriously didn’t know better, he actually sounds kind of convincing 🙂 Your scarves run rings around this dude lol! Our oldest says, “That was interesting, but I know that was totally NOT a scarf. Maybe I would go to the store and buy one instead if I were him!”

    • teeheehee… I love that his delivery is so completely calm and convincing 🙂 Your oldest is quite wise at such a young age 😉 and I totally agree that he ought to set aside his knitting sticks and stick with buying pre-knit scarves ❤

  3. oh wow…. is he drunk? that has got to be the most absurd thing I have ever seen.
    Its amusing that he assumes that it’s so easy.

    Although I must admit to putting pegs on the ends of my double pointed needles to keep the stitches from falling off. I never thought to use tape and glue.

    • HAhaha… I’d say his tape ‘n glue technique is fairly drunk with audacious inspiration! Your pegged dpns, on the other hand, will have saved actual stitches ❤
