Continental Knitting

This is a new thing. I’ve always been bad at knitting, but know that I’ve mastered tension (very slightly) for tunisian crochet, I thought I’d try again, using the continental technique.

This is working better than my previous efforts to learn, because you control tension in roughly the same way. Unfortunately I still need better tension control for this, but I think I’m getting there.

I hope to be able to use the stockinette stitch with tunisian crochet. because if I can get it down, I’ll be able to knit a lot faster than I can crochet… so this would be handy for big pieces. Also, I’ve never been to impressed with the tunisian “knit” stitch–it seems like a poor imitation of the real thing.

So I’m hopeful that this is going to work out.

      This form of knitting is not the usual one, which is called English knitting. I’m sure I still can’t do that at all.
