I'm a Continental knitter who has learned English. My English stitches are looser than my normal Continental ones and that makes for less than satisfactory results with color work. I'll keep practicing and learn to hold the yarn English style so that I get better tension. There's a project I have my heart set on doing in Fair Isle. It was almost impossible for me to learn to purl English and haven't yet managed the Norwegian style.
