In between sittings to finish Barnacle Bill, I taught myself how to knit in the continental-style, as opposed to the English-style. Yes, I am a thrower, but I think I've retrained myself. I tried first from the diagrams in Itty-Bitty Nursery, but it was really difficult and I began to think I wouldn't be able to make the switch. Then I came across a link to a video on YouTube through Craft Sanity and I watched the first part on the knit stitch one night, and the purl and switching between the 2 the next day. It didn't take me long at all, and now I think I've got it. Obviously I'm not fast yet, but I'm steady and with practice I know the speed will come. And just in time too, because yesterday I cast on for the scarf I'm knitting for my Pop for Christmas!
Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween, I'll fill you in on ours tomorrow!
