Thank you. 🙂
Question for you…are you a “thrower or a picker” when it comes to knitting?
I’m pretty sure I’m a thrower because I tend to wrap the yarn around the needle more than anything else, but might try this picking thing because I need to work on my tension, it tends to be too high if I’m not paying attention (a-tension 😉 ). Plus I could definitely improve my speed because light weight/small gauge work feels like it’s taking forever.
Hmmm…. I learned to knit as an adult through teaching my oldest daughter a Waldorf based homeschool curriculum. I feel that it’s a faster way. My Mother knits American style-“throwing” and she’s pretty quick. It just might be the way that you first learn that’s the best. The thought behind Waldorf is teach the children to knit before they teach reading ( see this http://www.wbez.org/series/front-center/first-grade-knitting-and-stories-are-focus-not-phonics-99638 ).
I think the key is probably consistency. When I knitted my 11-foot-long Doctor Who scarf I got wicked fast by the end, but if I didn’t pay attention I’d accidentally drop stitches.
Yes…I picked up a book the other day that is funny as all get out! You just might enjoy the author has a blog. “Things I Learned from Knitting…whether I wanted to or not by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Cool I’ll have to see if I can find the blog. Looks like the book can be pretty cheap on Amazon . . .
She’s quite funny…
