I guess I'm fortunate that I'm a fast knitter but I have to say it's not
something I aspired to haha I only realized recently that I must knit
fast! I think in my case it was just a matter of necessity to get
things done. I taught myself to knit right after having my dd and
was really slow but I was doing it to relax so didn't care. The older
she has gotten the more of my time she demands so I have a limited
time for knitting and I guess subconsciously I started getting faster
and faster just so I could get things done in the short time each day.
I think if you are enjoying your knitting it doesn't matter if you are
fast or slow!
