Teaching Myself To Flick

I finished a worsted weight hat last week. It was supposed to be for my dad but ended up going to my daycare provider who is losing her hair to chemo. Well, my needles were cold so I pulled out the second skein of Lilliput Yarn Woof Worsted and cast on another hat over the weekend.

This is the chasing cars colorway and is a nice mix of blues, greens and yellows. I want to learn to flick instead of throw my yarn. I think it will cut down stress on my wrist and possibly make me a faster knitter because I won’t let go of the right hand needle.

Flicking in ribbing was really slow and my index finger got tired so I used a mix of flicking and throwing on the brim. But for the stockinette portion I am flicking all the way and I’m FLYING through this hat. I do have some tension issues but they will work out with practice and aren’t that big of a deal in hat. Honestly, my brain feels kind of good learning a new skill.

Happy Knitting!!
