Asian/Oriental Style of Knitting?
Maybe some of you here are familiar with techniques and can help me out.
My grandmother knits and she was talking about seeing an Asian lady 30 years ago that draped her yarn across her shoulders and knitted but she wasn't close enough to approach or see her work. Last week she saw an Asian lady on a public show doing the same thing and when it came time to see the technique she was interrupted and missed it. She did hear the lady on tv say it was all in the thumbs.
Does anyone here know if this is an Asian/Oriental technique and if so if it called something specific? Could anyone point me to a site or link that shows a video or direction?
