I'm a part-time combination knitter, meaning I use this method when I'm doing lots of stockinette stitch because it's easier on my hands (especially the purling). But then I switch back to the "regular" way of knitting when I have lots of increases and decreases to do, such as for lace. Since patterns aren't usually written for combination knitting, I find it easier to follow the written patterns if I just do what it says rather than translating to combination!

Good luck!
