That's actually why I wanted to try the continental method - the videos I watched on KH seemed like the knitting was going a lot quicker, with fewer "finger acrobatics", and with less motion. It drives my boyfriend crazy when I knit in bed at night when he's trying to sleep; he says that when I really start to get into it the bed shakes like there's an earthquake from me throwing the yarn (I think that's what it's called - when I wrap the yarn around my right needle) lol. Continental method just seems more fluid, and maybe also easier on the joints. I never get joint pain (I'm 20), but I want to lessen the damage as much as possible so that I don't have to give up knitting when I get older from arthritis.
