Looking through my bin of yarn remnants to see if I have the colours to make a hat.
I knit like a European because that's how my European mother taught me. The yarn that feeds the needle is looped around my forefinger. I move my wrists to knit. Most North Americans I've watched knitting scoop one hand around the needle with every stitch. To me that looks so labour-intensive. But that's how they learned.
Body memory has its charms. The whole point to knitting (IMO) is not to think. It's hand meditation.
