That's the difference between videos and live. I find plenty of english videos if I look for them and not all knitters make videos anyway. I've only seen knitters who drop the yarn between stitches on the videos and none in real life.
I've knit in yarn stores, and in knit in public day as well as seen a few in airports around the country and other places where people are waiting. Most of them knit english. Or maybe I just don't notice the difference - they're all just wrapping the yarn around needles...
sue- knitting heretic
