Heres a funny one. I have carpal tunnel in both hands so that neither one of them get overly wore out or sore, I knit english and purl cont.
Don't ask, I dont know.
If I try only doing it one way, english or cont, the other hand gets wore out and visa versa so If im giving one hand a break every few stitches, back and forth, it causes me far less discomfort and I'm able to knit alot longer. I dont care about my speed so that doesnt factor in for me. As long as what goes where its supposed to be, then I dont care if I'm the slowest knitter on the planet. :XX:
