continental vs. English style knitting
I just returned from taking a class at the knitting national conference, and noted that the rest of the class were continental (and extremely fast) knitters. I use English (right hand thread) knitting/purling. I looked on your terrific web site and learned continental knitting, three different kinds of purling and made a swatch. However, now my purls are bigger than my knits (using either continental or norweigan purls), and so I get that unattractive ridging on my stockinette swatch. First question- should I persevere? just for speed? and 2. how do I reduce the size of my purl stitches so everything is smooth again.
