“The Continental”

I found out the other day that “The Continental” was not only a song (Fred and Ginger in The Gay Divorcee) but also a way to knit.  I didn’t realize that there was more than one way to hold my needles and thread.  My knitting group explained the differences and I gave it a try – rather unsuccessfully I might add.  I then continued the discussion at work and found that my knitting co-worker knits the “British” way.  Considering the pain in my thumb occassionally I need to figure out how to use this new method.  I feel enlightened!
