I kit to relax. It does'nt matter what method you use, knitting is about enjoying the process. A time to ease your mind and body, releaving the stress of the day. Their are many ways to knit and each way will get you to a finished garment or blanket if you keep knitting. I have heard that Contiental is faster, combination is the only way to go, Enlish is more graceful and elegant looking, But none of this matters if your pulling your hair out to do it and you begin to hate knitting.
What I am trying to say is this, No matter how you knit, enjoy the process. Let the rhythm of the stitches, as you create them, ease away the stress of the day. I remember reading from one of Elizabeth Zimmermans books that when she was drawing near to the end of a project, that she began to feel sad, because the project was over. I never understood this, until I started to knit for the sheer joy of knitting and not trying to keep up with what the next knitter was doing.
I hope this helps some. Just folow your heart and all will be well.
