Not being acquainted with all the ins and outs of forums, I posted this wrong the first time (used new instead of reply).
Hi, my name is Carol and I just discovered this site last week and joined last friday. This is my first post.
I have only been knitting for one year. I have learned from books. It's great to find a site with free videos. I intend to order the CD.
I am left handed but knit right handed using the English method. I was told at a knitting convention in Santa Clara last year that the Continental method is faster. I just can't seem to get the hang of it...I have tried probably more than a dozen times. I can't even successful knit one stitch using it.
Should I keep trying or is there something about having to use the right hand needle to catch up stitches that makes it more difficult for southpaws?
