One stitch at a time

One stitch at a time, a ball of string becomes fabric.
One stitch at a time, a piece of fabric turns into a recognizable shape.
One stitch at a time, a project is completed.

Still, an afghan requires a lot of stitches.

    looks great - still on the needles so I guess it has a bit more to be done before the finish mark!

    Practice makes perfect! Your stitches are oh so even.....I'm jealous. Do you knit European or American? ....Sharon

  3. I'm a thrower - so what most call English style, yarn in the right hand.

    I actually have a video of how I knit, since it's a bit of a strange method of tensioning the yarn, something I just kind of figured out on my own. It works to keep things even without putting any undue strain on my hands - I do get stiff joints if I do too much that is repetitive or requires a 'fixed muscle position'. The way my knitting style evolved seems to be optimized for keeping the hands both working, yet in a fairly neutral position. Video is here.
