"Pick" to knit and "throw" to purl. I am trying to convert to picking for purl but my stitches feel too loose and I always feel like I am in danger of dropping stitches. I don't know if I will ever make the switch.

Does anyone else dislike the whole "pick" and "throw" terminology? I don't know what rock I have been living under but I have been knitting for 16 years and only recently do I see these terms bandied around. Picking makes me think of a banjo and when people say throwing the yarn I see the ball rolling across the room. I just find it weird.
