I throw too. I can knit continental, but only do it when I get tired of throwing or when I am doing fair isle. I just cannot for the life of me figure out how to purl continental. I really think I am just as fast at throwing as I am at picking. It just feels better to throw. Plus I don't really "throw" the yarn with a big motion, I just move the yarn around the right hand needle using my right index finger. It seems like it is minimal motion for my strongly right-handed tendancies.
