How I Knit; How You Knit

There’s a cool thing going around Instagram, with lots of knitters answering A Verb for Keeping Warm’s question, “How do you knit?” The hashtag is #loop2loop. It’s interesting to see so many different styles of getting it done! Here’s mine:

Sorry for the lack of manicure; I’d never get the video done if I waited for that. Click the hashtag #loop2loop while you’re over there, and see many other knitters knitting along.

While I’m on the subject of Instagram, this lovely picture keeps showing up in my feed.

I always think, “Oh, cool knits!” and then realize it’s a dating service ad. Oops. I wonder why it keeps showing up in *my* feed? Not looking to date!

How do you knit? English? Continental? Throw? Pick? Other? Have you tried the other way, too? I learned continental for two-handed colorwork, but I find that it’s usually just as easy for me to carry both colors in the right hand and throw.

Let me know if you put your knitting style on Instagram!
