Having recently learned how to knit, I absolutely detest purling. It may have something to do with the fact that I am left handed but was taught to knit right handed. It just feels like an unnatural movement to me, and no matter how much I have practiced and done it, it does not get any better - as to the swiftness of it.
Anyway, here I sit at work knitting on my Wonderful Wallaby pullover for my granddaughter and I am up to the neck now where I have to purl every other row which makes me quite cranky. I got to thinking there has to be a better way to do this, so I figured out how to purl backwards…I know - backwards??? :?? I can’t see where this is changing the look of the stitch or the tension of the stitch so I see no harm in doing this. Curious if anyone else has ever attempted this or found a different way around the normal purling method?
