Thank you for posting this

Thank you for posting this clip. The women are holding their needles the same way I do. I have heard it referred to "pencil hold" , "cottage style" sounds okay too. There seems to be as many styles as knitters.

"Did you teach 'em how to purl?" --I LOVE THAT! Thanks for posting that Bill! I've had a crush on Cary Grant for as long as I can remember. I've seen a still shot of that scene many times, but I've never seen the actual film. It's interesting how many women were holding their right needle with a pencil hold. I've tried it, and even though that's how I hold a crochet hook, it never seemed to translate over to knitting for me. I've recently heard it called the "cottage style," but I don't know if that's correct. What a great clip!
