Continental Purl with Thumb
The other day I was talking with a friend of mine and was saying that I'm really enjoying switching from english to continental, but was complaining about how tired my fingers can get when I'm purling a large project. He suggested that I try using my thumb to purl instead of my forefinger.

Can someone explain how this works? Or does anyone know of a video that would show how this works. I have my own ideas of how this works but just can't picture and don't know how to start. Suggestions?
