I switched to continental thinking it would be faster, and it probably is on the knit stitch, but I'm still a slow knitter and will just have to stay that way.

GG, I learned how to knit English style and never really could get the purl stitch down very well. I always had to drop the right needle to wrap the yarn, and didn't for the knit stitch. It's probably how I held the yarn in my right hand. Since this thread started I've looked around for some videos of fast purling and most of them purl English style. My fingers just won't do what they can do. I'm comfortable with continental now so I don't try anymore, but I do wish you luck in your learning. Despite being right handed, it's just not that easy for everyone.
