Continental Knitting with Beth Whiteside
In Continental knitting you tension the yarn in the hand holding the unworked stitches (for most people this is the left hand) and use the other needle to pick stitches through in a quick and efficient manner. Learn the basics of tensioning the yarn and picking the stitches rather than throwing. This great technique can solve a multitude of knitting problems or just be a good companion to the way you already knit. We will learn the knit and purl stitches and have time to practice and discuss how to transition to this useful method of knitting.
