difference between Continental and English
The biggest difference between continental and english styles other than the way you do the knit stich and purl stitch(that is whether you scoop the yarn or throw it over) is what hand it is in. english style knitting always has the yarn in the dominant hand(by that I mean that left handed english(knitting backwards) has the yarn in the left and right handed english(the style I normally do) has the yarn in the right) continental though always has it in the non-dominant hand(by that I mean left handed continental(backwards continental) has the yarn in the right hand and right handed continental(normal continental) has the yarn in the left hand)
