also, instead of "throwing" I move both hands to the center when knitting, so that one hand doesn't get more tired than the other, I am going to learn continental one day, maybe. And, when I purl I flip the right hand needle toward my left hand, and that make the arm movement a lot less. I am going to try to upload a video of what I mean by that.

WOW!!! Very nice thread. This thread is very beneficial for beginners like me. I have just started to learn knitting and from this thread I have learned so many tips and tricks which are very useful for me.
Hi I have use several things as stitch makers. Different coloured yarn, hair clips or pins, rubber bands to name a few. As long as they work for you is all that counts. I must admit I have not tried drinking straws or earrings. I suppose as they say "necessity is the mother of invention". great ideas though.
