Yup. Portuguese knitting in which the knits are the reverse of Norwegian purls. The cast on looks funny but it is just an another way to do a long tail cast on.

I thought so too. It looks easy for her but I couldn't get it to work for me.

I agree it looks like Portuguese knitting but the way she is doing the knit stitch looks a little different to me.

I just noticed her needles. I've not seen any like them before.

It also looks like she’s knitting left handed!

You are right. She is left handed - as can be seen when she does the sewing up, at the end.

This is possibly why it seems a little 'different' to right handers watching.

Be nice if we could understand what she is describing. I think I will go with my type of knitting.... English and a thrower.

The slipper looks easy to make. Has anyone seen a pattern for it in English?

It certainly is an unusual way to knit. I liked the socks though.
