I have been knitting for about 12 years now and never new there are different styles’ of knitting till now …And I am still not sure what kind of style I use :shock:
It is similar to continental , only I don’t hold my index finger up .
I wrap the yarn around my pinkie and the yarn just lays across the rest of my left hand . I found that by holding my index finger up in the air with the yarn caused too tight of a gauge, I was fighting with the needles. I am so use to knitting this way and have been for a while , that my knits move along pretty quickly. So, I really don’t think it matters what style you do that causes speed knitting.I think it is more experience based .
I tried English style last night and was all thumbs…so I will be sticking with my style . Besides , no matter what style a person knits with, it is comforting. I am always dozing off while knitting, yep , my family gets a real good laugh when they watch me knit…lol
It is interesting that there are so many different styles of knitting.
Thanks for sharing .:mrgreen:
