I was trying to learn continental style knitting and even took a class in it so maybe something rubbed off cause I finally figured out how to hold the yarn in my left hand so I could be more consistent with the tension.
That's great! I knit Continental and cannot get the hang of knitting English. I keep trying. I can do it well enough to mess around with a color in each hand but I can't get the tension right. Two colors in one hand? I don't think I'll ever get that one.
