Do you remember this post? I honestly thought there was something wrong with the way I knit, but based on your lovely and very helpful comments I appeared to be wrong. Then my lovely friend Louise sent me this link and I thought "Ah ha! That's it! That's how people knit so fast and don't drop their right needle." Not only was there another way to knit, called 'Continental', but my style of knitting had a name too 'Throwing'.
I thought it was my "ah ha" moment, it looked easy peasy and sounded fancy, this "Continental" knitting. I had visions of cardigans literally flying off my needles. Rushed to grab my trusty needles and wool and set to work studying the video.
And my 'ah ha' moment vanished as quickly as it appeared.
So I am now FULLY resigned to my knitting technique. There is nothing 'continental' about my knitting, no fancy sounding name for me, I am and will always be a "Thrower".
Rest easy knitting needle stash, there will be no bonfire, but you must be content with my no classy, needle chucking (throwing) technique.
Toodles... L x
P.S. I have to admit other names of my knitting have come to mind - Thrower - Chucka - Tossa??? Ok that last one isn't very appropriate, but it did give me a little chuckle.....
