Watch closely around the 55-60sec mark.

Her right hand stays put, with her finger just flicking the yarn around the needle. This is much closer to continental-style knitting than your usual English-style knitting (dropping and picking up the yarn each stitch). It's also like the underside of a sewing machine.
Her left hand moves up and down, allowing her right needle to move in/out of the working stitch while staying put (so she can flick the yarn). In essence, her left hand is like a sewing machine needle going up/down.

It's very mechanical and very efficient.
