I learned English method when I was 7. For 22 years, that was the only way I knew how to knit.
When I saw the Continental style, I HAD to change to it. It just made so much more sense to me.
It took a little while, now I swoop along those rows of knitting with my yarn in my left hand.
Two reasons it feels more natural for me:
1. I Crochet
2. I Tat
Both of which use the yarn in the left hand.
Persevere if you can, it truly is worth it.
