Hi!

I, too, had difficulty with purling continental until I saw this video and found that I wasn't holding the yarn in my left hand properly. Once I made sure that the yarn wrapped around my pinky and then lay across all three remaining fingers the purling just skyrocketed. And it was much more comfortable than purling had ever been before.

Happy knitting,
