OMG, that reminds me! When I tried to teach myself how to knit out of a book a few years ago, I was sooooo frustrated because it just wasn't working. I found another book, discovered and tried the continental method, and everything just "clicked".

I honestly don't even remember learning to knit from my mother or sister (though I do remember working for just a while on a never-finished baby hat for my nephew). But, somehow, something apparently stuck which made continental more "familiar". Sure, I still needed practice, but I could see a light at the end of the tunnel.

My point (oh yeah, that ): have you tried knitting both ways?
