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

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

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 knitter for Jesus!
