I am determined to learn to knit and purl English style. I don't accept that I can't do it. I'm looking into how these speed knitters hold the yarn, maybe I'll learn something from them. Speed isn't my goal; being able to knit English is. You see, the right way right now is for me to be able to do yarn in each hand and be comfortable and confident with it. So far I can knit but I don't like the way the yarn feels as I hold it and I keep dropping it and having to pick it up again. Surely that doesn't happen for the speed knitters.
