Thanks everyone. I guess I will just have to really work on that. I will finish my current glove with the same hold, but then really consentrate on loosening my tension.
I'm glad to hear that others switch between the styles. I have found that english works much better for ribbing for me, but I like contenintal for knitting and purling.
Thanks again for the input.
