My vote...
Hi!

I would definitely vote for continental. I switched over a year ago and I love it. My knitting motions are smoother and switching from knit to purl on ribbing is incredibly easy.

But I had this you tube video to encourage me. It's the best I've seen on the subject anywhere.

Just practice this until you get past the "Holy-Cow-I'm-all-thumbs-and-feel-like-I'm-starting-over" stage which probably won't take more than a few hours or so. The worst that can happen is that you'll have learned two knitting styles that you can use whenever you want them!

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Ruthie
