Part c of my knitting resolutions is now achieved.
This was the one about experimenting with continental style knitting to see if I can speed up. I can’t claim to be much faster but I feel like all I need now is practice, then the speed will come.
I already had no problems with continental knit stitch, but purl stitch just looked too complicated.
Now thanks to knittinghelp.com (again) I can do the norwegian purl, which looks very complicated, but I found quite easy I got my head around it and actually did it.
So I can now knit and purl by picking with the yarn in the back. At first glance at my swatch my tension doesn’t seem to be all that different. I did notice that because the yarn is being handled a little more the Sublime CSM I used fluffed up a bit.
You’ll just have to take my word for it that this swatch was done contintental/combined.
I think I need to find a hat or some other simple pattern to practice on.
