Look at her go! (I have been watching knitting videos—again!) Pit knitters can be wicked fast. And, they can knit tighter without damaging their wrists. So, why do I bother with knitting sheaths?
I have been experimenting with pit knitting. It has its virtues, and its faults.
Fault 1, Pit knitting with fine needles (DPN) for fabrics designed to be worn in cold weather is uncomfortable.
Fault 2, Pit knitting does not let me use the spring of the needles to knit faster and tighter.
That is my story and I am sticking to it.
