There's no reason for me to RACE when I'm knitting. I want to RELAX when I knit. Plus, I like seeing each stitch form, with careful attention.
Also, I have constant pain in my arms, so I can't do Continental knitting anyway.
If they are in a hurry they can go to Wal-Mart, If they want a hand made custom item of knit wear they can wait.
