Toilet Paper Tube Knitting!

Hey, y'all! The other day I shared a blog post titled Toilet Paper Tube Crafts and it was wildly popular! It made me recall another favorite craft involving the lowly toilet paper tube and that's making a Nifty Knitting Tube! Here's a three minute video to show you how:
All you'll need is a tube, some popsicle sticks, tape, scissors and yarn. That's it! For a loose knit, use only four sticks. For a tighter knit, try using six.
If interested, this is just one of the 44 stitch and string projects from my book! Have fun :)
