I am not fast at all, though crochet goes much more quickly for me.

I used to think I was fast, but either I'm slowing down or knitters in general are speeding up! I will say, proudly, that I just sent a Christmas stocking that I knit *for sale* off in the mail to its purchaser. That I got through by settling down carefully for a few hours each weekend through October and most of November (with a few revisions for design adjustments). A sweater usually takes me two months, if I can knit while doing simple reading or movie watching. My latest effort, the February Lady Sweater much discussed on line, took me four months and, alas, is not flattering. Ah well. Mittens next: quick and easy, and good for the church fair!

I spend so much time ripping things out through dissatisfaction that I'm half the speed I should be.

What are you making? Looks v pretty

Anne

I am intrigued with this project - is it the small bag from Alison Crowther-Smith's Little Luxury Knits? - an excellent book for kidsilk haze fans if I am wrong and you are not already in possession of a copy!

I like my knitting to be meditative. But the colours you've chosen look so good that I'm sure they'll speed your needles along.

I am a fast knitter but I haven't managed to be able to knit while reading, driving, cooking or walking. Most would say that was a very good thing but it whittles away the time for knitting.

I've found that it works best to have different kinds of projects going- something more complicated for those moments when you have good light and focused attention and something simple to take along with you to work on in all of those other moments of waiting and waiting.
