I finally tried Continental knitting
again after a few unsuccessful tries in the past. I'm not sure what made this time different, but it finally clicked in my brain. I'm working on a Booga Bag (and I HATE that name, btw) and since it's all in stockinette I figured I'd give it a try. Here are my questions:
1. I'm having trouble keeping my tension consistent. I'm holding my working yarn the way Amy does in her video, but it's not sliding through as I would like. I'm getting some stitches that are very tight, and others that are much looser.
2. The pad of my middle finger on my left hand keeps getting "pinched" between the needles. It doesn't hurt at first, but after a few hundred stitches, it is starting to bother me. Does this happen to anyone else?
3. I'm working on a circular needle, and I haven't figured out a comfortable way to push the stitches up on the left side to work them short of stopping knitting
and moving them up in a big section. When I knit English it just sort of comes naturally and I never have to think about it. Any tips, or will this start to come naturally, too?
Thanks in advance guys! You all rock.
