Continental Knitting

I had intended on trying to write faithfully every day....apparently that's not gonna happen! Oh well, maybe I should just commit to writing when I can, lol. Any-who...I am pretty excited right now. My family is together & happy, our homeschool year is going great so far & I have learned Continental Style knitting...wooo-hoo! I don't know why that was such a big deal to me, other than that I am so obsessed with knitting that I want to learn every aspect of it....or maybe it's that I can't stand the thought of something beating me...hmmmm. Ok, I have tried to learn this style of knitting before, but just could not for the life of me get the hang of it! Then, I came across this link to this amazing speed knitter, and finally it clicked!!! Woo-hoo...I was inspired & I got it! Purling continental was kicking my butt though, so once I got the knitting down I was on a hunt for a video that would inspire me with purling as well. I found this one & this one on YouTube & wooo-hooo, by georgies, I got it!! It still isn't as easy as the english style knitting, but it has clicked, I can do it, & practice makes perfect! Actually, I am really enjoying knitting (and purling) continental style, and that is a real shock for me.

Ok, I'm off to school the littles & cuddle the kitteh.
