So here it is.  My dad wants to be able to do something with his hands.  The problem is, he's diabetic, and has little feeling in his hands.  He used to be able to knit (in the 60's, of course!), and he's tried to knit now, just because I'm picking it up now.  It's tough for him.

What I'm wondering is if he might be able to use the Knifty Knitters a little easier.

Any thoughts?

the tool you use for the knifty knitter is kind of tiny but seems reasonable to give it a try eh?
 If not, why not try and give your pops some size (US) 19's? he can always use like 2 or 3 yarns  mixed together to make some cool scarves or a big bulky sweater or anything. But why not give the knifty knitter a try? You can get a set of them with a (40% off)  coupon at AC Moore or joanns or Micheals right? worst comes to worst he doesn't like doing it, or it's too hard also  and you can give it to one of the kids in yer fam. you could also try weaving with straws, thats pretty easy on the hands...

take 3 straws or more, thread them with yarn, tape one end of the yarn to the straw, let the other end hang down, line the strings up and tie them at the bottom( leave like 3 feet or so) and then tie a yarn end from the ball onto one of the straws, and wrap around over/under style. you keep pushing the yarn down as the staws fill up. you can make some cool fabric like this...I've made tons of belts and straps ,headbands etc.

good luck, hope your pops likes the knifty knitter!
