Now that I’ve been knitting for a month, I was really curious to see if I coud finally teach myself how to knit Continental. All of the local shops teach how to knit the English/Throw method, but after watching my friend Katy knit the other way, I really wanted to try it out. It is amusing because almost all of the local knitters that I have met knit English, but so many people online knit Continental. I wonder if it a geographic thing and follows along with certain regions of the country.
Tonight, with my Booga Bag in hand, I watched the “Getting Started” episode of Knitty Gritty that I had saved on the TiVo – and when they covered how to do the knit stitch … I DID IT! I’ve now done about 5 rounds Continental, and it is so smoooooooth. Plus I love knitting in the round while watching TV or talking on the phone. This is just great! I’m so excited!
