“Irish Cottage”-style Knitting

Posted by mtmom on April 10, 2010

Have you ever wondered how (mechanically speaking) yarn harlot Stephanie Pearl-McPhee  knits?  She terms her technique “Irish Cottage knitting”, after her Irish grandmother who worked as a professional knitter back in the day.  Here are 2 videos, the latter having slow-motion and voiced-over portions.  Hope you enjoy them!  (Thanks to cousin Angeluna for the first link!)
