I am an English knitter, so I figured if I'm going to knit with both hands I better watch a how to Continental knit demonstration. I watched the one here on this site and another from uTube and I gotta say - It's so much more efficient!

I just finished knitting 2 rows with my front yarn in my right and my back yarn in my left as Oneyarn did and it's much easier than holding both of the yarns in my right hand.

Has anyone ever switched from knitting English syle for many years to Continental? I'm having the hardest time keeping the tension as I'm Continental knitting, but I guess it's like learning how to knit for the first time. Practice, practice and more practice!
