Learning a new style - grrrrr!
So, when I first started knitting, I knitted in a "somewhat english" style. Not quite classic english, but close enough that when I tried to learn how to do formal english knitting, it was easy enough to pick up. I've recently started trying out continental knitting, mostly for the speed benefits, but also to make intarsia easier...

...And I'm beating my head against the wall now because it's so darn frustrating! My fingers don't want to move like they should and the tension is all over the place! And while I can see that once I really get it down it might be quicker, it is waaay slower than my english knitting right now...

Has anyone else had similar issues trying to switch between styles? Any tips you can give me for making the transition easier?
