Was showing her continental-style (trying to, anyway) two other classmates are knitters but knit English style and were observing "my way" and were fascinated. One of them watched carefully and said my way seems faster/easier. I told her it's awesome if she learns to do both, will come in handy (read that here somewhere.) I was careful to be diplomatic about the styles of knitting, and explained to the noob I was showing that she should use whatever style works for her, could by my way or English knitting or something else (Eastern?)
I found it hilarious I've only done two dishcloths and two garter stitch scarves and a noob thinks I'm some kind of expert.
