View Full Version : How Fast is Fast??

Now, before I start hearing how "knitting is all about the experience of knitting"... and "it's the end result that matters"... :rollseyes:

I was just wondering how fast a fast knitter knits... I realize that the type of yarn, and the pattern, and the needle, etc have a lot to do with speed, but is there a general guide-line that defines a "fast", "intermediate", or "slow" knitter???

((I read that someone online "claims" to be able to knit 9 stitches per second... I find that hard to believe, unless they are using a machine)) :shock:

I've never timed myself. So much depends on my mood, what I'm knitting, what else is going on.. . . .
