I was knitting in public the other day and I couldn't believe how many people came up to me and commented on my method of knitting. I had more comments on my method than I did on the product the I was creating. I am a continental knitter, this is how I was taught and I do not know any other way. I am also left handed and am told that this is a better way for left handed people to knit. Some people said "Oh wow, your mother must have taught you how to knit cause you don't see many people using that method now a days." Others on the other hand said "that's wrong, your knitting wrong, you're cheating!" "You're not knitting, you're crocheting." I myself don't quite understand the controversy over it, knitting is knitting, is it not? Don't we all end up with the same result in the end? If all the knitters in the world were knitting from the same pattern even though they were using different methods end up with pretty much the same looking item in the end? Am I wrong?
