Have you tried using Amy's video for conti? It helps a lot!
And as with anything, it will become familiar with practice practice practice. I finally feel almost comfy with English; holding the yarn in my right hand isn't as comfy as I'd like it to be, but I'm working on it.
I do a combination. Sometimes I knit English and sometimes Continental. I would say that I mostly knit English, but somedays I switch back and forth and some days just Continental. It really confuses people :D
I voted English but I haven't been knitting for even a month yet...lol...That's just the first way I've learned...After watching Amy's videos though, it looks like I may prefer Continental knitting...Which I'll be trying tonight ;-)
