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?
Did someone answer your question yet? I"m not sure what you mean about "untwist"--you have to move the working yarn from front to back/back to front each time, but it shouldn't twist. :thinking:
