Who knew!!
I have just been knitting a few months, although I have made a few things with english knitting. My tension has been a sore subject with me. Last saturday I sat here with the continental knitting video and started knitting that way. My tension has much, much much improved, as well as my speed.
Many thanks for all the help!

It's a bit like water -- the best way for a knitter to knit tends to find it's own way.

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.

This is what I discovered when I learned Continental, too. Now I have to do my gauge to make sure I'm not too loose.
