Continental style knitting (also known as picking) is known for its speed and efficiency, as well as being a good choice for knitters who suffer from wrist pain when knitting English (throwing). In this two hour workshop, you will learn to knit and purl using the continental technique. This is a good class for English knitters who want to learn or continental knitters who want to increase their proficiency.
