I started a “live” knit along this morning. A LYS in our area is having a “block a month” knit along for the Manos Four Season Afgan. I joined in the hope that the group motivation will keep me inspired to knit the afgan, which I will have finished in December of this year! One square a month seems entirely doable to me and not at all a daunting task.
It was so much fun to see the color selections my fellow knitters selected.
I am doing this with Blogless Mary, Ann, and Ann’s friend Alice.
And, this morning – the topic came up about knitting styles and speed…
Yes, the great debate.
Continental or English, which is faster.
I came down on the side that neither one is faster than the other – but I believed that The Harlot could beat, hands down, anyone knitting either style. But, The Harlot aside – I think that all of us – whether we knit continental or english style – knit a relatively the same speed.
So, I am opening this up for your comments – what do you think. Is one style of knitting faster than the other? And, if you think it is – what is your proof for your theory…
I am waiting to hear your thoughts!
