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 will be out of the country for a couple of weeks so orders placed between March 2 and 26 might be delayed. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I will come back with new things for you!
Hi, Andrea, My order from you arrived today in perfect condition, and I am enjoying watching the videos. I have no questions about technique. Your explanations on the videos are quite clear. I expected that the Portuguese Style of knitting would be easier on my hands and wrists than my old Continental Method, which it is. What I find surprising is that even though it feels like I am knitting at a very leisurely pace, I am actually knitting faster! All of a sudden, the round is finished!Isabel
