I’m an english knitter - learned from this site no less. However, the siren song of the continental method finally got to me and I decided to get it a try. Complete and utter failure. I try to hold the yarn w/ it wrapped around my pinky then up the back of my knuckles, but I can’t keep the tension right because it doesn’t “pinch” tightly between my pinky and ring finger.
Even more annoying is the fact that I can’t seem to catch the yarn on the ( using the altered nursery rhyme )“up over the back” back. By the time I get to the “peek through the window” bit, it’s no longer on my right needle.
I’ve been using the video from Knittinghelp and the demo video done by the owner of CityKnitting( a youtube video that was linked here a while back ).
