Is it just me or do most knitters find 1 x 1 rib tedious ... yarn forward, yarn back, yarn forward, yarn back ... erk.
I've wondered if Continental knitting was invented for ribbing. Since I've only just learned the English method (for a different color in each hand) I now understand the distaste for ribbing. You knit English? You might try learning Continental even if you only use it for ribbing. It is so so so much easier.
