Seems that I probably confused poor knitters at the guild last year. It seems, unknown to Vonnie or I, that I picked up her grandmother's way of knitting. However, I figured out how to knit and purl without twisting my stitches, whereas I seem to recall when I first learned that grandma's method produced twisted knit stitches.

As far as I can tell, I don't knit quite the same as continental style, but neither do I do combined style (and it's definitely not English). Whatever it is, it works. I'll have to post some photos up online, because I find this fascinating. Fascinating because most books only show English and Continental knitting methods, but they're not the only methods that work.

Anyway, for anyone still in the guild that I might have helped, but only confused, I offer my sincerest apologies.
