with the help of amy’s videos, i am happily and successfuly knitting continental, but purling, not so much. i can do it, but it’s awkward and uncomfortable, and has been for weeks. My problem is getting the yarn down. In the videos, Amy uses her middle finger to push the yarn down and her forefinger goes down with it in a smooth movement. I can’t get my middle finger involved for some reason. I don’t know if I lack the coordination or if it’s my big fat hands, but regardless, does anyone have any other hints or different ways to get this step accomplished? I’m able to do it kinda pushing the yarn down with my thumb and also by grabbing the yarn in between my thumb and forefinger, but the awkwardness factor and time involved has me purling English still.
thanks so much!
