I knit Continental but with my current project I've been doing Continental with one color and English with a second color. When I was learning I couldn't get the hang of holding and throwing the yarn with my right hand and crochet-like Continental worked. I've heard Tunisian crochet
called single needle knitting. Have you tried it yet? I learned it on a normal crochet hook.
N0obKnitter, your great grandma taught you to hook?
I think you mean crochet?
In that case, I've spent a few hours hooking and have afghans to show for it.
