I’m a firm English knitter. It’s what knitting [I]is[/I] for me. It’s how I learned and the rhythm and movement is what makes knitting so pleasurable to me.
When I was a teenager, I used to watch the old Italian women on the train zipping through their knitting Conti style and couldn’t figure out from watching them how they did it.
Now that I could knit Conti if I wanted to, it just doesn’t seem like knitting to me. I have to pay too close attention at this point, too.
I’m satisfied with what I’ve made my way, so I’m sticking to it.
