Mathwizard thank you for replying to my post.
The reason I am searching out different methods of purling is because the normal method causes me stress, tired ness.
I agree, I am not interested in speed knitting, I knit for relaxation, although I do wish I was a little faster but that may be because I am a cautious knitter at this point in my experience level.
I have problems getting my second finger to do the job of pushing the yarn over the needle, so I have been adjusting and it tires my hand out.
But I appreciate your comments. I don't need a gauge problem so will have to look into that part of it.
