Pick or Throw?
I throw, I've tried to pick, but I just can't get the hang of it!

That's okay, you don't have to.

I throw. I find I can just work faster that way. Also less arm movement for me than picking.

When I knit, I pick. When I purl, I throw.

I'm a newly converted picker. :) Both definitely have their merits, though!

I'm a thrower. Many people have said picking is faster but I'm not really concerned about speed. I like to enjoy my knitting nice and slow but it'll be useful to know how to knit both ways. :)

I have no idea what you guys are talking about as such :)

In other words Susan, picking is continental, throwins is English.
