I'm sorry watching knitting videos that aren't in the Continental style is not helpful to you, it must be extremely frustrating and make thing much more difficult. I find them very helpful. Maybe you could supply the link to the video you found, I'd like to watch it. I keep working on holding the yarn in my right hand because I think it would be great to knit both ways but so far I've not been able to purl well that way. For using two colors I don't think I'd really need to purl so maybe when I try that again it will be OK. I also find that if I watch one video and get something from it and then another and get something from it, I can usually manage to learn most anything.
