Ive tried knitting continental cos i read somewhere its easier on the hands but as easy as it is, for some reason i'm tensing up trying to do it and also my knitting is rather loose knitting continental..so think i'm going to continue knitting english until the blanket is done. I'd hate for my squares to look odd - what a rubbish present it would turn out to be otherwise.

I wonder if wearing a wrist brace or something like that would help? What do you all think?
I wear isotoner theraputic gloves (you can get them on ebay, and lionbrand.com sells pretty much the same thing). They have really helped, but I don't know if that would be too much :( I have psoriatic and osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia, so there are days when I don't knit at all.
