last week I attended my first neighbourhood 'knit and natter' gathering, it was lovely and there were fabulous cakes!
Whilst I was there I was taught to knit continental style (essentially holding the yarn in your left hand rather the right). So far, so good, I'm not quite as fast as I am english style yet, but getting close. I'd love to be one of those super speedy knitters, you know where the needles are a blur of motion. I guess it just takes a whole lot of practice. But I'm fairly convinced that I can be a lot quicker with the continental knitting than I am currently. I just need a bit of practice, which is the perfect excuse to knit myself another sweater I feel!
