how long did it take to really get into the swing of things with continental. i learned to do it in two minutes, but im struggling with efficiency, nice even stitches, and comfort. my hands are crampy after just three rows! (15 stitches to a row. short!!)

when did you start to feel comfy with picking after being a thrower?

For me I :heart: doing knit in Continental. It seems so much faster, however I can't seem to get the purl stitch going correctly. So I guess I am a odd ball when it comes to knitting.

I Knit in contentintal and purl in English. Oh well I guess another skill I can practice while frogging my previous project

When I switched to conti knitting I would say that it took me about a month to get nice even sts.

Purling continental took me longer, too. I think you're doing great!
