Learning new techniques: from English to continental to ? combined ?
I'm embarking on learning some new techniques. I'm an English-style knitter, but I hate doing ribbing more than anything. From looking at various videos and reading people's comments, I think I might enjoy doing ribbing more if I learned a different basic style. Combined style looks like it might be the smoothest, most streamlined. But it does include holding the yarn on the left! So I'm starting with trying to do continental first, to get my left hand use to it. It feels so awkward! But even so, it's already getting a little better.

Happy knitting, everyone!
