I never really thought of myself as a slow knitter. I do knit more slowly when I work on complicated patterns and things. But I was watching all those videos from the links I posted yesterday. Some of those knitters are speed demons! So I started to ask myself. Do I knit slowly?
I can really cruise on certain projects like my mom's pillow cover which is mostly stockinette. And in truth a lot of those knitting videos are of people knitting stockinette. But I feel so frakkin' slow watching those videos.
I don't have any particular reason to worry about my knitting speed other than the fact that I'd like to be able to knit more things in a shorter amount of time. I think for that reason alone I'd like to work on being faster.
