Hi again. For the past day and a half I've been trying to figure out the continental knitting. I've gotten the hang of it (sort of!).
As you can see from the pics, it gets very messy towards the end.
Some questions I have:
- It gets very very tight for me when I'm trying to do the knitting. How do I loosen it? I try to adjust the string tension with the pinky (I make sure it's loose like in the video on this site) but it's just as tight.
- Are the strings supposed to be like that? [See picture] For some reason the tail is lower than the actual string I'm using. It doesn't seem right for some reason.
Edit - 06 Nov 08 - Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the tips. I've been sort of experimenting on how to hold the string and it's helped a lot.
