Day 18: Do you knit English or Continental?
Continental. I chose to learn that method because I already knew how to crochet, so I was comfortable holding the yarn in my left hand. I don't think I'm a very fast knitter, so I'm sure my technique could be improved.
I haven't spent a lot of time purling, so far, but when I do purl I think I'm using the plain old Continental method for purling-- but I've watched a few videos about "combined" knitting, and if I had to purl a ton, I might give that a try. (So far, purling hasn't seemed that bad to me-- but that might change if I end up needing to purl long, uninterrupted rows.)
The crochet version of this question would probably be something about whether you hold your crochet hook like a pencil or a knife.
I am definitely a knife-style crocheter. It never occurred to me to hold the hook any other way, and when I try to hold it like a pencil, now, it just feels wrong. (g)
