[QUOTE=laikabear;1141921]OK, someone else posted this video in another thread and it is way better and so clear!
Hi, Maureen, Thanks for forwarding the video I put on Knit Tips & Tricks over here! When you mentioned there was a thread about continental, especially the purling, I came looking for it so I could put in the website. Thanks for doing that! :muah:
A word about continental knitting. When I started knitting again last year I was knitting English. I read about continental and thought I'd give it a try. I had difficulty with the purling and worked out a way to do it so it wasn't too awkward, but when I saw the above video it all fell into place. I already loved continental style, but getting the purl stitch right was the cherry on the sundae! Now I absolutely ROCKET when I knit, and it's very smooth and efficient.
Too bad, really. I was already hooked on knitting - now I'm fanatically obsessed with it! Oh, well - at least it's not going to rot my teeth!
Have fun with this. I hope it helps all of you as much as it has helped me!
