I decided to sleep in and not go into work until around 1 today. Ah the beauty of being a graduate student assistant. Anyway, in the midst of doing laundry and re-potting plants, I decided to take those pictures that I promised Fluxx to show and example of the knitting styles. So here we are. The first two pictures are continental style, where the yarn is carried on the left hand, which really reminds me of how I carried the yarn for crocheting.
Next, is one picture of english style knitting, which is hard to take a picture of when you are right handed! The yarn is "thrown" around the needles with the right hand instead of "picked" off the yarn held in the left as in the continental style.
I'm really liking the continental for knitting stitch, but having a hard time with the purl stitch still. I need to practice more. Finding the time is the hard part.
I'm going to try to get some WIP pics up later on tonight.
