Continental knitting

I've always wanted to learn how to knit the continental way...but whenever I've tried it just doesn't work....looks easy...but I just can't do it....
So anyways....I was browsing around and stumbled across this video on YouTube

I soooooooooo want to try this!!!! (with some scrap yarn of course...maybe I could practice on washcloths or something. I'm glad that she mentioned that she has to go down about 2 needle sizes when knitting the continental way...I never would have know that....I think when I tried before...one of the things that bothered me was that everything was so loose and sloppy, I thought it was hopeless....

Anyways....I'm gonna try again!

Thanks for sharing that video. It's really interesting. I don't think I'll be switching to continental anytime soon, but if I ever do, this will certainly help.
