Knitting for Speed and Efficiency -

I bought two skeins of Dream in Colour Classy to do a practice garter scarf using the Harlot's Irish Cottage knitting technique. The one on the left is Flamingo Pie. Excellent name, delightful colour.

I think I am knitting at about a 1/3 to a 1/2 of my normal speed, but efficiency is winning. This method seems to be much less strain on hands and wrists. I am thinking a knitting belt or something would make it even easier on the arms.

And this was another excellent thing about the summit. I didn't attend the Harlot's class. Morag did. And then she taught me and Lis.
