Today when I was finishing a scarf I went back to English knitting because I was getting frustrated. The reason I wanted to learn continental to begin with is because of a bonnet I was working on where it was k2 p2 and I was sick of wrapping the yarn back and forth it just was taking too long. I just have to stay motivated and keep at it. My stitches are so uneven it's like you said I am like a beginner again.
