Look! A Knook!

So, tonight I was just doing some normal grocery shopping at Walmart, and I couldn't resist checking out the yarn aisle. And then I found this.

And I was like... whaaaaat?

What IS this? I don't get it. It looks like a cheap imitation of tunision crochet (which I'm still trying to fully master), but not really. The instrument in the package has a crochet hook on one end and a knitting needle on the other. The pictures make it look like some crazy combination of knitting and crocheting. And there is even yarn specifically made for knooking! And "knook" patterns! Say whaaaaat...

So yeah. I grabbed it. Couldn't resist.

I cant wait to figure it out. What planet have I been living on that I haven't seen this before? I don't know, but should be fun. If I like it, you may see some cool knook creations (and someday patterns!) that I share here.

What do you know about knooking? Are you a fan or is it just a rip off? Share your wisdom with me. Leave some love, and a comment. :)

Easiest EVER Infinity Scarf

So, I have an unhealthy obsession with infinity scarves. Ever seen one? It’s the scarf that literally never ends. If you live anywhere near a college campus like I do, you know they are all the rage for autumn fashion. I started to count all the infinity scarves I have in my closet, and… well… let’s just say I have more than any sane person should have. They're classy and stylish, and they conveniently dress up anything you are wearing; especially a t-shirt and jeans.  I decided it’s time for me to make my own! This scarf takes no time at all to make. It really is the easiest pattern ever.  

Use medium worsted weight yarn (I used two colors: beige and speckled black) and a size J crochet hook.

Row 1-  ch 201. Sl st into the beginning ch. Without turning, dc 200, continuing in the same direction. Sl st into original dc. Ch 2.
Row 2 *DO NOT TURN. Continue in the same direction, dc 200. Sl st into previous sl st, ch 2.
Row 3-5: Repeat from * all the way around.
Row 6: Continue in the same direction, dc 200.
Row 7: To change colors, cut color A, leaving about an inch long strand. When you are finished, you can hide this by tucking it into your stitches with a yarn needle. Bring in color B with a sl st into the previous sl st, ch 2.
Row 8-9: Repeat from * all the way around.
Row 10: Continuing in the same direction, dc 200. Finish with a sl st into the previous sl st. Cut off and weave in loose ends.
