Continental just makes more sense for me. It also analogous to how one holds the yarn in crochet. If I were to guess, I'd say crocheters are probably mostly continental knitters.

Amy likes to say that there is no right or wrong way when it comes to English vs. Continental. The right way is which ever way works for you. Previously, when I have knit I did do English, just because the mechanics made it easier to get the yarn through. But watching Amy speedily knitting continental and effortlessly switching between knit and purl stitches compelled me to learn continental.
