Continental Knitting with Kellie Nuss
Continental knitting involves tensioning the yarn in the hand holding the unworked stitches (for most people this is the left hand) and using the other needle to pick stitches through in a quick and efficient manner. It is a great technique to have in your knitting repetoire. It can solve a multitude of knitting problems or just be a good companion to the way you already knit. Your instructor will teach the basics of tensioning the yarn and picking the stitches rather than throwing. We will learn the knit and purl stitches and have time to practice and discuss how to transition to this useful method of knitting.
Materials: Any yarn and appropriate needles for sampling.
