kitchen faucet pipes thump while water is running

I've read numerous bulletin board items on various web sites regarding water hammer, and I don't think that is what I have, because my noise only occurs when the water is running, not at the time it is shut off. It only occurs at the kitchen sink. I can see the pipes under the sink physically shake as I increase the pressure. There is no thumping at low flow. Is my only problem a loose faucet washer and/or valve stem assembly?
