Is it just me or do most knitters find 1 x 1 rib tedious ... yarn forward, yarn back, yarn forward, yarn back ... erk.
I do, but I knit english so it's very tedious to yf, yb all the time. I avoid ribbing unless it's just for a few rows on a hat. Sometimes. But it's a lot easier to rib if you knit continental or combined, so it depends on your style. If you knit english but flick the yarn with the index finger, it might not be so bad.
