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!
