I have wanted to learn continental since day one.... I am knitting a really fugly scarf that tension mistakes won't show (and give me an excuse to work on it:pout:), so since reading this I have watched the cont. videos (several times), and have started doing the scarf project that way, to get comfortable.
I have some left over sugar & cream and think I would like to try this as well.
Also a crocheter, I think I will adapt to this faster than I adapted to holding the yarn in my right hand -- that was tough. Just gotta quit trying to use my left pointer finger to hold the needle... my finger is hurting, from using and holding muscles in a way I haven't in a while.... anyone else, or is it just me??:oo:
