learning new tricks

I want to learn German style knitting (a.k.a., Continental) and I've done a little searching and a little practicing.

The best resource I have found is from the blog http://www.craftsanity.com/ with Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood.

She has a video of German style knitting on this page. This same video is also found on YouTube. See it below.
The one problem with this video is that it misrepresents English style knitting; it too can be fairly efficient. When I knit, my right hand does not leave the needle to "throw" the yarn. Anyway, the video is good for what it does do, i.e., show German knitting well.

I'll keep you posted on my progress.
