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
Dear Andrea, Your dvd's and the pins arrived last week and I've been so busy watching them I haven't had time to write and thank you. They're wonderful!! As I said, I've knitted for many years but there were things on your videos that I have never seen before. There were also things that I'd learned long ago and forgotten about simply by not using them. I took your advice about knitting back backwards for the entrelac baby blanket I'm making and it worked beautifully. I'm simply thrilled. While I was watching the videos I really felt like I was in a class with you (which in a way I guess I was). I believe that regardless of the cost of a class, if I learn one thing I didn't know before, the class has paid for itself. And your classes have paid for themselves many times over. Thank you again and I look forward to doing more business with you and keeping in touch.Bonnie
