Did anybody out there start out as an English knitter and “convert” to Continental knitting? I have a question. I was trying to learn how to knit Continental, and while I finally learned how to hold the yarn and maneuver the garter stitch, I noticed that my right needle was really going up and down like a seesaw! This doesn’t happen when I knit English. My needles will move, but not exaggeratingly so. Was it just that I was trying to master the technique so I was really trying to move those needles around?
Also, do you find yourself knitting more off the tips of the needles Continental style than you did English? When I knit English, I make sure I push my stitches down the shaft of the needle a bit so I don’t have too tight stitches.
