Continental is faster for anything ribbing/seed stitch where you keep having to need the yarn at the other side. But, yes, for stocking stitch it does still feel like knitting left handed

I was doing continental for the background, then english when I got to the central cable section. I learnt english, so when I need my brain for cabling, I need it to not be occupied thinking about continental. English is more natural for me, but now that I know both I can swap & change. Makes me feel clever

And if he never wears it, well I have a lovely warm sweater to steal. All I need is some extra pounds to fill up the 'ease' I added in the front
