I knit continental, but now that I think about it maybe I should have said "both" because when I work Fair Isle I carry a color in each hand.
I only know one other continental knitter- everybody else in my knitting groups knit English. I recently taught 2 ladies to knit that are avid crocheters, & they find continental easier because they're used to holding the yarn in their left anyway.
As far as whatever is fastest- the fastest knitter in our group knits English. I knit continental faster but it might be because I don't have as much practice with English.
