On the lines of the thread about English versus Conti, would you [B]expect[/B] that a beginner class in knitting would be taught using the English method?
I’m working on teaching a beginner knitting class in order to get my CYA (Craft Yarn Council) teaching certification and I knit conti. I can’t knit English. Never learned that way (although both my kids knit that way – go figure!) So I’m teaching the way I know best and that’s conti.
Is this going to be a problem? I know some people have said that English is easier to learn but is that really the case or is it that you are just more comfortable with the way you learned to knit? Knitting is awkward in the beginning any way you slice it (IMO)
Just wondering. :think:
PS – I’m going to have my dd who is turning 9 next month show me how she knits so I can get a better feel for teaching knitting using English method.
