I wish I could do the English just a bit, because it would help me a lot with my stranded knitting. Right now, I tension every yarn over my left index finger, no matter how many colors I'm knitting with. It's a little frustrating sometimes, because it's really slow and the yarns tangle.
I've not done color work yet because I couldn't manage the yarns. Now, after much trial and error, I can finally do English (I feel so proud!) and will try color work. All I can say is, try it every now and then and hopefully it will finally come together and you'll be able to knit English. I don't think I would ever prefer it over Continental but it's good that I can finally do it.
