According to her web site, Hazel uses a knitting belt which anchors the bottom of the right needle, and that helps minimize hand movement, and that in turn helps her speed. That, and fifty years of practice

I couldn't get the hang of English OR Continental knitting, but Portuguese came pretty naturally to me. Most of the yarn work is done by flicking the left thumb. I used a saftey pin and a paperclip to improvise my knitting pin.
