My shop on Etsy
I now have a shop on Etsy where you can see some of the magnetic pins I have for sale. There it is easier to upload pictures and change products all the time. Please check knitsbitsandgifts on Etsy!
The yarn is held around the knitting pin on the left shoulder, which makes the working yarn easily available, makes tension uniform, and requires fewer movements to knit or purl. This style has an incredible advantage for people who suffer from carpal tunnel or arthritis. According to students, they discovered that purling this way is much easier and faster than using either the American or German style. Another advantage is that, for blind people the yarn is always readily available and requires less maneuvering of the needles compared to other knitting styles
I wanted to tell you that this year I taught another class using your method of Portuguese Style Knitting at the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat and it was a success.Andy
