I'm an english knitter as well, and hold both strands with my right hand. It starts awkwardly, but now that I've done it for some 50 rows, it's easy enough. I tried holding one in each hand, and both continental, but I couldn't do it. I can't knit continental with regular knitting, so doing it for double knitting wasn't an option for me.
