Wow. I'm so glad this came up on my Daily email. . . soooo:
I switched to Crochet (which is a yarn hog) because my time is more valuable than *most* yarns, and I save knitting for 1) Sweaters, 2) fancy wool, for those times when the yarn is more expensive than my time =)
SO: it never occurred to me that knitting could be made more efficient than crochet. I have seen so many looms (including a 400 year old design for knitting stockings by hand crank) that I thought that knitting was mechanistic in large-scale. I never knew human hands could do 200+ stictch-per-minute.
I was wildly disappointed that there were no blogs, links, or techniques posted to show HOW to get up to 200 stitches per minute. I would love to learn HOW to do this!!! Do you have any such links, instead of just products, to show us how to use aforementioned products? I would willing get a courtier/loved one to make me a metal-tipped knitting stick, if I knew how one was used. . .
