How does she even see what she's doing??? Though, I've gotta admit, if I knitted that fast I wouldn't get bored on larger projects.

The Dude Lesson (right below) cracked me up. Some of the looks on their faces were priceless!

Isn't knitting supposed to be enjoyable? I can't imagine it would be fun to go so fast that you don't even see what you're doing.

From what I've read, she's mastered the art of REM (rapid eye movement). She can see and enjoy everything she's doing.

In one of the videos on KP she talks about that (rapid eye movement)...

It would come in handy during the holiday times or that never ending afghan

I did like one of her tips, I hold my left index finger very far out...she mentioned that puts a strain on those muscles and I do get sore after I knit for a long spell...so I'm going to try and hold it closer, not sure I can hold it as close as she does though...

This would be a whole lot more helpful if they did it with the camera behind them and show us how in slow motion.

Man if I could knit that fast I could get a full sized blanket in under a day. Imagine how many projects could get done!

Get out, shes just pretending....

Seriously though, I dont think I can even move my hands that fast. I should video tape myself knitting and you guys could really have a laugh... No need for slo-mo lets say...
