Doesn't that take forever when you are ribbing or some other multi-stitch pattern?

Does anyone else dislike the whole "pick" and "throw" terminology?
I prefer "english" and "continental", but I've heard the terms.

I wouldn't sweat knitting one way or the other. Continental knitters always say it's faster, but who the heck cares. Just do what works for you and makes you happy.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
