I’m not sure if I should post this here or in the Lounge but I want to share my story with as many knitters as possible.
While I’ve been away a lot from this forum I’ve been busy knitting, learning and practicing a new skill - continental knitting.
I am writing this to encourage all the English knitters out there who want to master continental - it’s possible! I’ve done it! It may take some time and practice but most of all [B]persistence.[/B] Don’t give up and have plenty of hand rests between. Do little and often.
I still use my right hand for knitting 2 together, binding off, eyelets, increasing, etc. but for straight knit or purl rows I can change hands whenever I like.
[B][U]Best advantage[/U][/B]: seed stitch and ribbing
I now actually enjoy ribbing or seeding!
However, I must point out that none of this could have been achieved if it wasn’t for Amy, the videos and all you supporting knitters. Thank you.
