A Different Knitting Technique

Several years ago I met Berta Karapetyan, the owner of School Products Yarn in Manhattan.  Of course, at the time I didn't realize who she was but I've since figured out she's a very knowledgeable knitter and here's her video demonstrating her Eastern European knitting techniques.  I'm going to give it a try and see if it relieves the pain I've been having in my thumbs lately.

She had a yarn store in New Jersey a few town away from where I live. I bought her book Runway Knits
and she signed it for me.
She has done a lot of knitting and crochet designs for movies and TV. In fact Saturday Night Live did a skit about Martha Stewart getting out of jail and she crocheted the poncho they used in it.

Very cool! She's got several helpful videos on You Tube.
