She is incredible! I think I could quite possibly compete as the fastest tinker! Seriously! Wonder if "Un-Knitting" counts for anything?

Last night I kept setting my Pampered Chef timer for one minute...and couldn't get beyond 28 st per minute on US11 with the bulky yarn of my current Log Cabin. What slows me down the most is queuing up stitches onto the left needle, and pulling yarn up from the skein. In real life knitting, there are lots of little fiddly things we do in preparing to take a stitch!

Oy, the 'fastest knitter' in the world is a novelty to watch...but not a person to try to emulate!

I am most proud of: I rarely have to frog or tink or correct a stitch.
My stitches are usually right the first time!
Slow but sure!

When I was timing myself for speed, I did less.
When I was timing 'my natural speed'...I did 2 more stitches!

I think I'll time myself tonight. I'm sure I'm slow. I'd love to be faster simple because I have (make?) little time to knit, so even small projects take me days. I knit an "Unoriginal Hat" (thanks for the link in the other thread, ArtLady!) and it took me several days to finish.

Then again, I figure I'm doing good to get any knitting done with a 6 week old, right?

I knit about 16 stitches per minute, but I fumbled at turning the needles, and I have issues with queueing up the yarn on the left and having it bunch up and need to be moved along down the right needle. Oh well. Maybe I'll try a few more times, just for fun. Or maybe I'll try on circular needles instead of these clumsy long single pointed ones.

That's funny that you knit faster when you didn't try to go for speed, ArtLady! LOL! Maybe that will work for me, too.
