Learning continental knitting
Hey everyone,

So I'd been knitting about a month using the English method when a woman in a local knit group suggested trying to learn continental. I've been trying it for a few weeks now, and I'm definitely not picking it up as quickly as I did English, with the main problem being keeping all my stitches the same tightness. Have other people had this problem when switching over? How long did it take for it to become routine? I think part of my problem was starting with a seed stitch pattern, so I've gone back to good old garter stitch and stockinette stitch samples. Quite boring, but I'm hoping it will help.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
