Oh crap. I think I may have a problem!
Okay, when I knit, I use the combined method; but when I purl, I use the continental method. (This happened because I learned to knit from a diagram online; I learned to purl from Amy!)
Anyway, I'm working on various increases/decreases and am really confused about the orientation of stitches since apparently I'm knitting oddly. I know, from Amy's video, that combined knitters have to make adjustments; does that apply also on continental purl rows?
Does anyone else knit like this? Do I need to decide what I want to be: continental or combined? I love knitting combined because it's so easy to just scoop the yarn and go--it's very fast for me, but the drawbacks in more complex knitting & following patterns may not make it worth the speed. (I don't really have enough experience to know when to follow the pattern exactly and when to make adjustments based on my knitting style.)
I hope I've made sense here...
Thanks in advance for your help!
