er, a question. like Amy suggested, i tried to rib. as in k1p1. so if you are an english knitter who holds yearn on her right hand, do you have to 'untwist' every time you switch from knitting or purling? i find it very annoying and more importantly time consuming. is there any other way to do it? (or am i doomed? ) or should i change to continental?
