There is a new KAL that someone brought to my attention, and I just could not resist.

Teaching myself to knit in this style has been something that has taken time. Having been taught in true "thrower" fashion, learning a new technique called the continental method is painstakingly slow, but from the looks of things, far more efficient.

It is not difficult to see that over time and with practice, speed will come. No "ache shoulder syndrome" is also a plus I look forward to.

My first project for the KAL will have to remain a secret for the time being. My floats are over 3 stitches. Oh, and I am having FUN!

You'll have it in no time. Once you learn the continental method, you'll find places to use it all the time. I love it for ribbing. And when I'm doing a straight stockinette project, like the one I'm working on now, it's the best.

It is addictive isn't it?! Can't wait to see what you are working. I am trying intarsia...I like the two color fair isle better. For me the bobbins are a pain...hence I must be doing something wrong!!!
