Is there any difference on the result of your knitting when you knit through the front or back loop?
I am right now knitting a pair of fingerless mittens for myself. There is ribbing and I have to knit in back loop and purl in back look. Looks the same to me as regular knit in front and purl in front. So I will be curious to see what answer you get here. I find it much easier to knit the regular way especially in the purl in the back loop!! It sure slows me down and I knit continental and usually knit FAST.
