Ah, thanks for the reply…we can ramble on like a rose, eh? LOL!! We’re not making a ‘technique video’, right? Oh, yes…
I, too had trouble converting from English flicking to Continental…would work in the TV room and come crashing back to my PC two rooms away to try to figure out this ‘purl’ thing! I’d scream, rant and rave with hubby looking me over as if I had lost my mind…quick lose, he’d say! LOL!!
I’d get my revenge by boring him to tears with my glea over learing a new technique…if I really wanted to get-to-him, I’d scoop up my project and plop on the couch next to him…an start a little chat; LOL!!
I like to hear the chatter about styles, methods…even if I disagree…so, I say ‘how to do this more efficiently, using less movement of the arms, hands and fingers…IMHO and as far as I can tell, Combined Continental my have the fewest movements of all styles…knit a 10’ afghan/blanket and your body will let you know…LOL!!
Gotta confess, though… I can’t P 4 tog using Continental anything and revert right back to English flicking; LOL!!
