I think it's really cool that knitting is making the news in general, and I also think it's cool that the whole arm knitting idea is being referred to as a "craze" and a "trend." The fact that knitting is capable of having trends points to its continuing upswing in popularity among the younger crowds, and I'm all for it.
Arm knitting projects are also showing up on Ravelry these days, which means that this trend is being embraced by the online knitting community, and not just novice knitters who like to browse Pinterest. (Not that being a newbie is a bad thing; I'm happy that there are more and more new knitters these days and I hope they stick around and become a solid part of the community.)
Of the arm knitting projects on Ravelry, I think that Simply Maggie's Arm Knit Blanket looks the coziest, don't you?

Anyway, all this arm knitting buzz has piqued my interest, so I've come up with my own arm knitting project idea and I'm going to start working on it this afternoon. We'll see how it goes...
Happy knitting (with or without your arms)!
