I just picked up a Knitting boards Tadpole from Joann's a few days ago (75% off because it was missing the knit hook, which I happened to have at home anyway), and have made some decent progress on my first scarf. I have to say this now though: purling had better get easier, because otherwise, I'm not doing anything on this besides stockingnette. I just did one row of purling, and I'm beat. Is the only way to accomplish this to hook the yarn from under the row (one at a time)? It's the only instructions I've seen for purling, and if there's a better, faster, less yarn-splitting way, I'd love to hear about it. The biggest issue with purling in regular knitting is moving the yarn back and forth. This... has bigger issues.
That's the only way I know. And some people take better to different types of knitting looms. I know I have a different style of doing things with a nail board vs. a peg board.
