Hi everyone…I’m new here and I’m so glad I found you all because I sure could use some guidance.
I am a long-time knitter but I’ve always knitted English style. I discovered the continental way on this site and I am determined to use it. I am having fun doing the knit stitch but purl is a different story. I’m just cannot seem to position my left thumb and middle finger so as to “grab” the working yarn and push it down and around the needle. Is it me or does this take a lot of practice and will I ever be able to do this? Anyone else have this problem at first and also who prefers the Norwegian method for this reason?
